So what is the issue you are having so we can help you? You starve the fish for 2days? Once you transferred everything over you should have not added any fish at least for the first week to make sure there was no any ammonia spike in your new Tank. Your system might have gone threw another cycle with the transfer of LR and sand. That may have cause you to have High Nitrates?

You're not alone Captain... I'm missing what the deal is too. Nitrates at 7.5, transferred to a new tank, left old sand behind, moved over new rock to new tank with half of the old water... pretty much sounds like the way to move a tank.

Again... hecticdude - what exactly are you wanting advice on?

Also, if you use punctuation and type some complete sentences now and then, you might get more people willing to help out.

Should you rearrange your rock?... guess it depends on if you like the way it looks.

Agree that your tank could probably use a little more rock. But any uncured rock added at this point may cause a mini cycle. Better to either add fully cured rock, or at least cure the rock in a separate container before adding it to the tank.

I see no reason why you can't turn on your Phosban reactor at this point.

Can you get your LFS to confirm you water parameters?
I still think you may be overstocked.............How big is the grouper?

I'm not trying to be rude, but can you use punctuation? Your posts are very difficult to read.
