Thanks. I think I have a workable plan now. I'm coming up on a PWC
so I'll make it a big one and siphon the wastewater into a tub. Then place the bigger pieces of LR
in there and not worry if they have a crab hidden in them. I can deal with moving the smaller LR
in-tank then place my "show" pieces out of the tub. Should be able to scape it in under an hour (only 28 gallons....actually, just noticed we have the same tank Hockeygmc
) and the only time anything is out of water will be the transistion from tub to tank.
While the bigger pieces are in the tub, it'll give me a great opportunity to suck out any LR
die off and other waste from the sand too while the big rock is removed
