no sand bed help

no sand bed help
I am setting up my new system I want to use my old setup to house all of my live stock and corals for a couple of months well the new system cycles. well here I my question I want to use the sand from my old system so I need to remove it and put it in my new setup. well I will put and the live stock and the rock that has corals on them back in the old setup with now no sand.

What do I have to do to maintain that old setup with no sand. do I do anything different then normal? It will be like that for about 3 months I will move the fish over after about 2 months the corals after about 3 month.

it would be easier and better to just put new sand in ur new setup. u can use ur old setup as a refugium if u dont have one already.

if you had a deep sand bed it could have cause problems. in some cases its easier to just buy new stuff.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
