I'm curious how do you switch substrate? Is it going to be emptying the tank, and put everything back with the new substrate? Or is there any simpler and easier way?
For switching substrate, I use a ~1 inch hose, about 5 or 6 feet long, and a bucket. Remove rocks, turn off filters, heater, etc. and begin siphoning the water and sand into a bucket. When the bucket is full of water (and a few inches of sand) I empty just the water back into the tank. Keep on doing this until the bucket is nearly full of sand, or until you can no longer lift it. Start again with a new bucket until all of the sand has been siphoned from the tank. By doing it this way you don't have to remove any livestock unless you're worried about them getting siphoned.
