I totally agree. As long as you dont lose the bacteria from your filters and rocks you`ll be good to go. My only suggestion is that you use new sand or really do a extra special cleaning of the sand that you have because there will some foul stuff in there. When I changed over I used new sand and seeded it with a cup or two of sand from my tank.
