Moving a marine tank! Any advice?

Iím moving house next week and have to move my tank. Unfortunately all of my rock is glued and covered In coral.
I also have a few anemones that are stuck to the rock which I cannot get to the foot to get them off. Anyone got any helpful advice or tips?
Iím thinking of getting a 145l container to place the rock straight into

since all your rock is glued it will be a bit more difficult to move and keep partially submerged since it contains coral . the splashing around should help keep coral wet but you can pour some of the water over it if it needs it .

your tank and everything with it should be the very last thing you load and making it the first thing set up before moving everything else in .

unless you have a way of dedicating the move of the tank alone on a separate day so not to over whelm yourself in the move give yourself time to get things back up in more of a orderly fashion .

Get a large horse trough to move the rock if you need a ton of space.
