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.

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.
