They will be fine :-) I tend to change all my tanks around once a month or so :-D The fish spend hours exploring the new setup after I do.

have fun!

When adding new fish to a tank that already has some semi-aggressive or aggressive fish, it's even recommended that you rearrange a bit, so that there's no established territory to fight over. That way it's like they all have to stake a new claim instead of a new fish being dumped into already-established territory.
