i recently added sand to my tank, during a move, after having a cc substrate for almost 2 years. the guy at my lfs told me to just mix the two together so i don't loose the good bacteria. i did this and it worked very well.

Well I changed out the CC w/ sand last night. So far so good, I really like the looks alot better. I filled some nylons with some of the cc and haven't had any problems as of yet. Went pretty smooth.
