This is in Vancouver. I have dealt with them before but never for rocks. Their live rock is $6 per pound or so and base is about half that.

Moving over the sand will stir up lots of detritus and could cause a mini cycle during the move. Just search mini cycle in the forum search engine and you will find lots of times that this has happened. Keep in mind though that it is not guaranteed to happen, though it could happen.

When transferring sand absolutely right. But that is something that should be avoided. Sand is one of the cheapest expenses in this hobby next to the water.

It coukd still happen outside of transferring sand. Any sort of shock to an established system could cause a mini-cycle. Heck i the OP bought live rock online and didnt cure it properly it would mini-cycle
