Rearranging LR

90g FOWLER with a Tang, couple Clowns and a handful of inverts.
Is it okay to make a pretty drastic change in the LR layout?
I'm hoping to move alot of rock to one side of the tank to create more of a sandy plain on the opposite side to better view snails and starfish ect.

Just be careful about crushing tiny inverts.

I just rearranged mine with no ill effects.

Make sure that you don't crush any fish or inverts!Relocate them before you rearrange your LR.

Also have some premade SW ready just in case your water parameters go south. Sometimes you can cause a small ammonia spike from messing around with the rock and sand.


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

Good advice Mike! I agree on the water change potential when re-situating rock.
