I am currently using crushed coral, but switching to sand in the new tank. Should I get some live sand from my LFS? I'd rather not put any of the old crushed coral in.

Yes use new sand. Carey can tell you what kind she got...lol. You don't need live sand, maybe one bag of it to seed the rest.

Don't buy the "live sand" in a bag from your LFS, its BS lol. Buy the dry stuff and just use a small amount of your CC to seed it.

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

Update: got the tank moved today (finally). Only casualty was my coral banded shrimp, he made the fateful decision to try to hide under my carpet anemone in the transition tank. Fish and coral all seem to be doing well. Thanks for all the helpful advice. Now to the new 125, I have two 1 1/4 drain holes, bulkheaded goes into barbed style connection for a hose. Should I downsize these prior to the sump? Hoping to use as little PVC as possible. Any tank plumbers out there? Thanks
