    Ok, took the plunge and all done...for now. Took about 1.5 hours, I did put about 5" of tank water in a tub to keep stuff moist. I was able to leave the four biggest pieces in the whole time so thats good.

    When I fired the skimmer up it TOOK OFF and overflowed really quick. It has since filled another 1/2 cup already. This is from stirring so much up and my arms being in the water is all I can think???

    I did scrub my arms down with tap water (no soap) before hand, is that proper procedure?

    Thanks for the votes of confidence everyone! I have a tendency to over think things and get paralyzed unless I know the outcome will be good...not a good trait in aqua-world!

    Cool. That works, too.

    Yep. It'll calm down before long.

    That's all I do. Never had a problem with it.

    No problem...

    It's always better to ask if you're uncertain.

    Good luck with your tank. I think you'll be fine. :)
