    Hi Guys

    Im transfering all my stuff from a 500 liter to a 1000 liter. So i have filled up the 1000 half way.Then ill take the other 500 liters from my old tank and add it with all my live rock.

    My QUESTION is should I transfer my sand as well and wouldnt it create a amonnia spike when taking it out?

    I transferred my sand, but I rinsed it with salt water first. No issues.
