I moved my tank

Well, We decided to move the 75 gal down to the basement. We moved 110+ lbs of rock, 4" of sand and fish and corals. The move took about 6 hours. I dipped most of the LR and got my mantis and some bad crabs out The mantis was smaller than I thought he was.

Only dilemma now is the tank is still cloudy and the LR needs to be rearranged some what. I left some of my sand out to put in the refugium but I did not have enough water made to finish it all. The tank is running with my same sump and the refugium sand is in a rubbermaid container. it has enough water in it to keep it moist. How long will this sand be good for? I plan to get some more water today and get it plumbed into the main system.

Only casuality was the CBS. It is still living but lost an arm when he freaked out in the net

I will get some pics soon.

If you can keep the sand wet and at room temp (70's) you should be good for a few days acutally.

Sounds like the move was a success.
