Yeah you need to remove the substrate to move it. Average substrate in a 55 is gonna weigh around 100lbs give or take. Also I would greatly question if the sand is suitable for FW. The crushed coral defiantly isn't unless you want a rift tank. If the sand is actual marine sand its likely to screw up your pH.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
