It will stress your fish so I would plan it out as much as possible before starting

There will certainly be some release from the sand when you move rocks around!

There is a build up of hydrogen sulfide gas in substrate and they are released when disturbed. I would suggest to move fish to a large container with water from tank, heater and air pump while aquascaping. Do a large water change the following day and acclimate fish before putting them back.

I move things around all the time. Well every few months, but usually workout incident. The problem is that the water gets cloudy, and then I can't see what I'm doing. It's really a never ending cycle
