I have a 90 gallon tank, 120 gal total system. Tank has been up and running for about a year. Should I be aware of any issues I may encounter removing my sand bed? Any tips for success from anyone who’s already done this?

I did it on a lot younger and smaller tank. Took out all rock work and livestock before removing the entire sand bed to not cause issues. It worked, but since you have 4x the size I had, I would go slow and do what @Rmckoy recommended.
