It would probably be better if you only removed 1/2 at a time.

I did 1/4 a week in my 55. Make sure you have some PWC ready in case you get and kind of spikes.

I agree with larry that you could do half at a time. As Scott said make sure you have some PWC water available.

Around 250. The general rule is 2 (or more) x gallons in tank.

It depends on how deep you want.
Here's the Sandbed calculator from RC. Plug in the #'s and you get the answer.

It tends to calculate on the high side. Change the pounds per foot to 70 for a more accurate calculation if using aragonite.
