Bioactive thoughts

So I'm setting up my first bioactive tank for my ATB and I'm looking for thoughts on a substrate mix.

It's a biggish tank (36x18x36 exo terra) that's already eating into my budget so I'm looking to be cost effective where I can.

Would the following mix work for a bioactive substrate (I have many of these ingredients on hand already). Is there any that are a waste adding, or any that for sure I need to include?

Coco Fiber
Sphagnum Moss (shredded up)
Cypress Mulch
peat moss
leaf litter (crumbled up and mixed in as well as a layer on top of the substrate).

Here's the tank progress so far.
