im thinking about taking all the lr out of my tank for an hour or so to clean my cc bed, it a deep cc bed which i know is a no no, but i bought this tank off a guy so it wasnt my decision. ive got alot of diatom in my tank, im not sure if its because i dont have enough flow or what. my lr is leaning against the back of my tank which isnt helping my flow problems at all so at the very least my lr has to be moved. how would you guys suggest going about this or shud i just not do it.

what kind of rock lift? ive been looking into it and i dont really want to drill my rock. i was definately gunna blast my rock with a powerhead b4 i put them back in the dt, probally put a cuppe decent sized rocks in the sump. would it shock the system if i cleaned all the rocks and removed the cc, i would think alot of the bacteria would be gone

i got a pair of ocellaris a yellow tang and a 3 spot domino. i have a bubble coral as well as a couple shrimp and a bunch of hermits and snails. the guy i bought it off of said it was over 100 lb of live rock so that should help keep the tank stable right?

it took me about 4 days to get all the rock out, i did it in slow incriments without taking anything out until the end. theres only 1 rock touching the back wall now. and i only lost a few mini bristles which i can deal with
