You can move everything from the old tank into the new tank. I would just start with a tank of fresh saltwater and not transfer over all of the old water. If you move the sand and rock over quickly there shouldn't be too much die off but you might see a small cycle.

Every time I move a tank around I alwasy use new substrate. When you move the sand it releases alot of nasties that can foul your water. But yeah, just move the LR over and youre set.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
