Question Moving scape (Rescape) to new tank

I have 40g tank. It has got a chip on the edge. I need it repair it asap before it fails.

What I am planning is to take everything out of the tank and rebuild the glass tank to smaller 30g tank.

It will take atleast 5 days to get the tank ready. I have hairgrass carpet and few other background plants.
I will keep the fishes in a container.

Some Questions

1. Can I take out the ada soil and dry it and reuse (any advice to remove the hair grass carpet and other debris)

2. So while the soil is being dried how can I store my plants for 5 days while the tanks being ready. (Will it survive floating in water/Can I use garden soil for temporary planting.)

3. Can I add something under the aqua soil to nourish it. (I have granule fertilizer that have ammonia/urea)



Please shed some light here.
I want to know atleast what to do with plants to keep it alive without substrate
