5 gallon pails work amazingly well for this purpose. A large brute container at the other end will also make this easier. One container for the new SW means it can be continually aerated and temp adjusted when the new tank is set up, plumbed and ready for water.

Cheers
Steve

I think you need to get some 5 gallon buckets throw some airstones in each one, take all the fish and water you can on one trip, and grab the tank on the second trip (unless you can do it all at once).

Indeed, it took me 12 hours to move a single reef tank across town. Do try to prepare properly before hand so the entire transport/set up can be accomplished in one trip. ie.. rent if you need the extra room

Cheers

I have moved a fish tank 3 times and have one more move to go before living in our NON-RENTED, permanent home. This should not be a deciding factor. If you do have to move for some reason, you can do it. Everytime we have moved we have lost no fish. Corals I can not say because I just got into corals two years ago. Just have one day or evening (depending on tank isze) dedicated to it...you will need it. Believe me, saltwater is a captivating hobby! My husband grumbles when I start spending money on the tank, but when he sits down and watches all the activity in the tank or shows his buddies the tank I sit back and let him soak it in. That way I know he won't give me such a hard time!
