If you have fish in the tank how would you add more sand without stressing out the fish?

The way im gonna do it is, add 40 lbs of new sand to new tank and water. Syphon out water from the ten gal to hold fish. Add old sand and the rest of the water to new tank. Let it settle and add rest of the old water and fish.
