By rights if you move all live rock over and the livestock that rock supported then you should at most see a mini cycle. With my 55g I used all cured LR and with an hour drive home from the store I threw it in and still have 0 phosphates and 0 nitrates. Most of my stock is coral with the exception of a pair of clowns and my CUC but parameters have been stable. if the rock supports three fish then the BB can support three fish so the environment in which they support those three fish doesn't really matter.

So...can we stop the cycle then? Nitrites at 5+...do we just do PWC's to bring it all down and then add all the media/rocks?

Personally I would do a water change then move everything over and keep a close eye on parameters but you shouldn't see much of a spike. Drip acclimate everything first though.

How big would it need to be to put everything back at 0?

Depends on how long the rock is out of water. There is no exact answer though.

Omg i cant believe what happened last night!!! Woke up to HUGE mounds of sand everywhere!u torch and duncan were on the sand bed and completely buried!! The hammer coral was used to cover the entrance to my pistol shrimps cave! Turns out he dug under every rock and covered all the corals and made like 5 more caves. This is a nightmare.

Sorry about your corals getting covered, I've lost a few corals that way. As long as you caught it soon enough they should recover.

Also really like your clown, he is awesome! Mine are almost completely black but looks like yours are already, thats cool.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
