Thinking of changing out my gravel to pool filter sand. Any recommendations on the easiest way to do it? I don't have another tank to move the fish into so it has to be a one day job. Also should I mix the sand with something else like cichlid sand or crushed rock?

Just use a dust pan or plastic cup to tip out the old gravel, you can poke small holes in the cup to let the water drain out. Then just dip the new sand in with another cup. You don't have to remove the fish, but if you want to move them you can use a Rubbermaid tub to hold them until you're done.
