Is the an turnkey set up you are getting?

Moving a tank isn't as bad as some people make it out to be as long as you keep on top of your water changes and make sure your SG is stable. If it is going to be a build that is going to take some time to get everything established.

Do you know what fish? 8 fish is ALOT in a biocube. I have one

And yeah, just empty the fish into one bucket, the rock into another and water in both as far as transport.

Oh ok. Youre setting up a nice new tank. I get it.

Depends on the fish, 8 is an awful lot. what kind of fish you planning on?

have you cycled your tank yet? That will tell us what your parameters need to be

I think you'll be stocked with just what you listed. Without the 1-3 more. I have 6 fish in my cube but thats overstocked and mine arent nearly as big as what you have planned.

Just a warning, the cube can only take so much bioload with it's filtration so don't push it too far.
