Starting new.... Sorta

So i have 2 75 gallon tanks. One reef and one predatory. I've decided to tear down the predatory and put all my effort into the reef.

Can I take all the rock out of both tanks and then rebuild the reef tank with the best rock and not stress out the fish to much? There are no corals in it yet.

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

But to completely rebuild the reef tank I need to pull all the rock out of each tank. So they will be completely bare. And I feel like I am going to stress them out way to much of I leave them in there.

When I moved my 55g to my 125g the rock all went out into the 125g a few days before the fish did. i left maybe 10lbs of it in the tank. My fish were a little freaked out but fine in the end. well until the mysterious plague hit a few days later lol.....

Yeah I put a sick blue tang in the tank and he took out 5 other fish. But the move went smoothly enough...
