thanks.... I plan on moving everything to one side of the tank tonight and pulling out the crushed coral on half the tank. Im going to replace the coral with sand, then move my live rock back on top of the sand. In a couple weeks, im going to do the other half of the tank. After that, once all of the levels go back to what they are now, Im going to start doing the bio balls...

Sounds like a good idea. Just test for spikes in ammonia and have some fresh SW handy just in case. Good luck!

Good plan! With the sand, I am not sure. It highly depends if HD has the sand you need, which will cost almost nothing compared to what you will spend in a LFS. LS costs anywhere from 22.99-27.99 for a 20lb bag here, but most everyone will tell you, there isn't much "life" in it. One good thing about the live sand from the LFS is that it settles almost instantly in the tank. The other stuff will give ya a sand storm for awhile. You can also buy dry aragonite (sp?) it's cheaper, but not by much.
