however, today the ammonia went up to close to 4.0! What's going on?

Yes, I am getting a 4ft tank together for them. I know eventually they will need an even bigger tank.

I have a couple of questions regarding the new tank:
-I heard sand is better for CLs, would pool sand be the easiest to get etc?
-should I get some dither fish? If so I was thinking about zebra daanios. Any thoughts on this?
- Would it be ok for me to set up the new tank, add some of the old substrate in a nylon bag plus use the old filter material initially. If I do this, should I be able to move my guys over right away?

Thanks for everyone's great help.
Sorry to hear about your Greyhound.....

Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
