Moving a 90g

So i will be moving my 90g tank in a few months and am working out the logistics of the move.

I am going to be keeping it bare bottom just to eliminate that step, but the biggest question is how long do i need to allow the new salt water to mix before acclimating my corals and fish?

Im planning on putting my rock / corals in totes of water sealed with duct tape and my fish will be packed up in fish bags.

It depends on the salt mix, in all honesty. I always mix my water for a min of 24 hours, but there are some like Red Sea that say not to mix it for more than 3 hours before using it.
