I've brought the nitrates down a lot and I've even had them at 0 during a couple tests. If I decide to stir up the sand should I remove my live rock also.

Well if you've had them at 0, then you are already winning. Keep feedings down and up with the water changes. Twice a week is as much as a tank needs fed IMO.

You could use more rock also. Twice that amount maybe. It would also help with lowering nitrates.
