    90 gallon rebirth

    I'm getting ready to break down my 90 gallon tank. Most of you have seen it. It has been running for about 8 years. My plan is to rescape it and install a larger sump. I want it to be a SPS dominant tank with minimal other corals. I have completed my sump construction and am ready to start pulling rock. I need some opinions form you all. I want to clean my sand bed. Would a simple gravel vac work to clean it up? Or should I take it all out and clean it? I'm not opposed to having the tank down for a few days while this happens. I will be posting pics later on of the Sump that I built and the progress of rebirth.

    Thanks for the input everyone. A decision has been made, This tank will be broken down and redone going a different direction.
    Here is the way it looks tonight: Updates will follow.
