I would also recommend grabbing a 10 gal plastic container. The rocks could hit the glass too easily and crrraaaack.

petworld is probably 10 or 15 minutes or so up 390 north on west ridge road. (almost right off the exit of 390)

Check around and see if anyone might have a couple empty Instant Ocean salt containers. Makes it easier to move with the lock down lid by spinning it one direction (Hammer it open). You could put you LR and 5 gal of water in this container w/o any spilling.

2nd Tip. Might stop and check the temp of the H20 for the fish. If summer time travel then maybe drop a bag of ice near the fish to help keep cool (Not IN or directly touching).

I plan to have two plastic containers. One for fish and corals, one for rocks. I also have 2 heaters and the car will be air conditioned so I can keep everything adjusted right. Im not driving my parents are so I plan to sit in the back with them anyways. So anything I am missing? Im taking fish and corals out first, then rocks in another container, then replacing sand. Then when i get there i will put in rocks and water, and then fish and corals when it clears up a bit. How long do you think the corals in fish can live in a 6 gallon container and be ok for if provided with a little flow and heat? Because I know the new sand is gonna make the tank really cloudy and I would like it to settle a little before adding the fish.

Tank move

I moved a while back and used Home Depot 5 gallon painters buckets for the water. Used a set of coolers for the fish and plants.
