Sweet tank!!!
I found this very interesting:
When necessary, the sand bed is replaced with fresh calcium carbonate. I like the sand bed to look white, not green. I've also observed that the corals' colors develop better when the sand bed, together with the detritus in it, is removed every few weeks. It is quite a task, but the result is rewarding, in my opinion.
Anyone practice this method?

I've heard many reefers on reefcentral doing that. They use the phrase "recharging the sandbed". Sounds odd as you take out bacterias and faunas when you "recharge" your sandbed but I guess it works.

I'd love to get a goby to sift my sand but I suspect my tank just isn't big enough.
