hi i want to change my stand the one i have now will not allow sumps. I have a 29 gallon glass tank with 40 pounds of live sand and about 18 pounds of lr. Do think i should move my four fish to my 10 gallon qt tank and move some of the bigger piececes of lr and drain most of the water in to buckets and then just pour them back in when finished.

Get everything setup before hand for the move so that you can go quick. I'd just get a few buckets or tubs, put a pump in each to keep circulation, and spread the rock out between them. Keep as much of the water as you can, make the move quickly, and then rebuild. Try to minimize the time it takes, though this is a good time to do a little cleaning, rinse of rocks, syphon all the gravel, could decantur it to save as much water as possible but remove any detritus that has built up.
