Redoing tank questions

Going to redo my 75 gallon when my plants get here later this week.

I am getting some more Seachem Flourite and replant.

Can I do this and leave all the fish in there? Was going to lower the water some but not so much I can't leave my filters running.

My planted tank. 55 gallon fluorite substrate over soil, 64 watts of light, excel twice a week. Weekly water changes. Angelfish pair, guppies, BN plecos and otos. Redone 11/13/2012
One non planted tanks. 75 gallon.

If you are adding more Flourite to an existing substrate you should be fine. Make sure to rinse the new Flourite real good before adding.

Yes I have a mix of Flourite and natural gravel in it now. Just not enough. And plan to super rinse that stuff.
Thank you for your reply.
