Consolidating multiple aquariums.

Tonight I have the chance of purchasing a whole 180 gallon aquarium set up( tank, stand, sump, pumps, lights) I currently have 2 75 gallon reef set ups that I want to consolidate to this one system. Has anyone done this before if so what methods do you recommend for acclimating corals, fish, and live rock?

Picked up the tank last night I was kind of unsatisfied with condition and cleanliness of the tank so I decided to do a whole scrub and a little work to the frame of the stand. The overflow was pretty messed up so I'm going to redo that and paint the back black. But here's to day one!!! I still have to go pick up the rest of the stand and some more equipment today. I see a lot of work ahead but well worth the effort in the end.

I am currently in the process of combining my 125g, 60g and 29g biocube into my new 180g. I am going very slow, just adding a few pieces everyday. As for the fish, I am putting in the least aggressive first and then will introduce the tangs and other aggressive critters a few weeks later. If you have the benefit of keeping all the tanks up at the same time i would suggest a slow move like I am doing.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
