Use new sand, keep rock submerged, and change 100% of the water if it's easier. Drip acclimate livestock to new water.

Keep the water, keep the sand. No need to throw it away, period. I used 30g totes from wal- mart to move rock, coral and fish from my 250g tank.

+1 to steve just move it all in containers or buckets its not as bad as it seems and you can change your rocks around to. Nice tank to!
