    i have a idea, I would want to change the method of my 400 liter tank, I use normally zeovit.

    i do not like live rock and i want to see from the high my sps places directly on the sand

    now i have approximately 70 kg live rock without sand on the bottom.

    my idea is to take apart all, to make a deep sand (sugar size) approximately 10 cm and to put only some live rock, 10 kg max

    you think this operation a risk for my SPS?

    anytime you take something on a tank, and rip it apart, there is going to be stress on a SPS. I personally wouldnt do it just for the risk alone. Unless you can setup a prop tank to hold everything while you break it down, set it back up, let it cycle, then add the things back.

    Why is it you want to do this?

      You can definitely go this route, but like scott said, it will imbalance your bacteria load since this is where most filtration comes from (live rock). If I were you, I would do it in phases. Here are some pics of tanks that have low corals to the ground:

        thanks invincible
        how I can make all this step by step?
        I thought to take off some live rock every week while I change the water until nearly the total lack
        at this point I could remove the animals and to put dbs
        but the new sand creates me problems?
