Soooo sorry to hear about the babies. I guess your big one wants to be an only child.

The earlier recommendation for scooping out the gravel should work. I had kept guppy fry in my little tank and the sand was pretty dirty. It would likely have been an awful amount of Nitrates to kick up.

I would take half or more of the clean top water and save it in a big plastic tub or buckets with fish, throw on the heater and air to the bucket and remove all the stuff, plants, wood and rocks, to another bucket as to keep the fish safe and scoop and rinse with treated water of course add rinsed sand.

Add most your old water to the tank, scape, then add the fish, and add the new water gradually over a couple hours if there is a pH difference from old to new, other wise just the same temp for the new treated water and wow, sand and a new scape!!!

Glad I redid mine, I was a little scared to tear it down and do it over. For my tanks I will be doing this to the rest of the tanks as I move them in the next couple weeks. Moving the 16G and the Edge tomorrow and or Sunday.

Hope your change over goes well!!!

The water is still a bit hazy from digging up the sub-straight, but i added this vine plant from an old lizard terrarium. I thought future fish may find it a heaven for breading, that and i like the color of it.
