It is not bad persay but you will stur up stuff ...like ammonia , nitrAte, NitrIte....
if you reaquascape run extra filters to help clear it up and keep the water polished ..This is what ours looked like when I upgraded tanks ... we had fish and corals but there were no losses. I ran the tandum filter for a week and increased the weekly water changes to 20% insted of 10%
10 gallon move

I agree, it should not harm the fish. I removed the CC substrate from my 55G. I actually had cc and sand, so I had to sift out the sand in the tank. I did 1/3 of the tank at a time, when the sand settled, there were no casualities, only some nipped fins.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

You`ll be OK. there are many times that we have to reaquascape our rocks whether to catch that rotten damsel or to keep new additions from fighting or whatever. As mrs Sadielynn said , nothing that an additional PWC cant cure.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
