When I changed my sand bed I siphoned the sand out with a i" bore pipe, Takes all the dirt ect out at the same time. Took a few evenings and about 400 liters of fresh salt water to replace the old. But no trouble with the tank. I too went for larger grain sand. Also a good idea to soak your new sand in old tank water for a couple of weeks before adding to the tank.
I have returned to this forum after a few years away, still running the same tank and enjoying the hobby. After spending many years building tank build threads and adding update photo's of coral growth and new additions on two other forums, I was very disappointed when they closed and all of my threads were lost. Apart from the thousands of people who viewed them and made encouraging remarks, it was also a reminder to me of how far the tank had come. Perhaps I will start again on here . This is the best thing about forums like these over social media sites, you dont get the depth of knowledge and passion that is expressed in build threads and coral care and propagation. Lets hope people get fed up with the shallow inane ramblings and once again search out the quite reefers enjoying the detail and long term dedication needed for a fantastic reef tank. Well thats my rant over. Martin
