Changing substrate

So, I'm going to have to change from gravel to sand since I'm planning on getting some dwarf cories in a month or so. Any advice on how to do this easily? I was simply planning on removing all the tank decorations, scooping out the gravel, rinsing off the sand, dumping in the appropriate amount and then putting back the decorations.

pretty much how u do it lol... theres no real simple way...


but my question is why does cories make a difference of being in sand vs gravel, ive never heard of that....

with the new tank i was thinking maybe a couple shrimp to help keep the sand clean but after hear all the probs people have with ghost shrimp lol.... maybe i will look into a couple cories

Well with cories I've read that a sharp substrate like gravel will damage their barbels.
