i actually just replaced my gravel for sand about 3 weeks ago....i just too my fish out of the tank and put them in a temp tank with an aerator, removed all my decos, scooped out the gravel with a net and put the sand in. just make sure you rinse the sand VERY well before adding it and use tank water for the temp holding tank. i made the mistake of not rincing it and it turned my tank wter BLACK for about 36 hours and 7 days and a whole lot of PWC to get my tank back to the crystal clear water
