I just moved, and taking the tank down sounds much harder than it is, and I had to go with a 120g and 55g down a flight of stairs
Rubbermaid containers are your best short term friend, they are only like $5 for up to 40g containers. I placed everything in its own one: a bunch had as much water as feasible, two had fish, a few had LR
, freshly mixed water, etc. When I got to my new place I just set everything back up and pumped the water back in. Just moving around your house you should not really even have any dieoff from the substrate drying, etc.
Just a note, if you try to move any tank with even a small amount of stuff in it (sand, rock, water), I would suggest placing the tank on plywood for support and to evenly distribute the weight.
