Re-Aquascaping?

Is this possible? My tank has been established for a couple of years now and I'm kinda unhappy with my live rock layout. It doesn't promote good flow and it takes a lot of organics. Can I move my rock around or would this stress my fish to no end?

Do some siphoning the buildup off the rocks first. Then move them to how you want them, I'd suggest figuring that out before hand, and then do a 50% water change.

Moving your rock around should be no problem. Ive done it countless times. Not going to affect anything. As long as you give your fish ample places to hide they will be fine.
