Generally speaking I would probably agree with you, though my concern would be that if you left them would they slowly creap into the system? Even so, if you're doing it on a daily basis there probably wouldn't be that much of a build up I would imagine.

If you have LR you will probably not be able to do 1/2-3/4 of the sand bed, so why mess with the little bit you can?. I know in my tank with corals there is no way to stir the sand and even if I could I would not. Its got to make a mess of the tank. When the clown kicks up one little spot it makes a mess. I would not reccomend it. But if it works for you then go ahead, its your tank. I like the nass snails they work well, the large ones are great..

well it seems to be the consensus here and abroad that I don't screw with the sand bed. so I have going to add a little more rock to fill in the empty spots. I have my T5 lighting coming, so I'll be adding some corals soon.
