Removing small amount then adding small amount of gravel........

Will this be a traumatic experience for my fish? I want to remove some larger gravel that I wish I never put in there, add more of the small substrate I have( I want to create more of an upward slope towards the back of my tank)
I know that I need to be gentle but should I even attempt this? I want smaller gravel for my corydoras

My 5foot, 56g Tank
2 Madagascar, 2 Bosemi and 1 Millenium Rainbowfish
9 Tiger Barbs
1 Weater Loach, 6 Zebra Loaches
1 Rainbow Shark
1 Raphael Catfish
My 55g
1 Siamese Algae Eater
11 Otocinclus
4 Burmese Zebra Loaches
1 Black Angelfish
1 Banjo Catfish
Lots of shrimp

Shouldn't be a problem. The fish won't like it but its unlikely to be much more traumatic than your usual working in the tank.
