I helped my friends dad move a 210 gallon tank, talking about a PITA, but that was because the tank was in a basement and it weighed 500lbs. What he did was put each fish in individual bags with water then into a cooler. all liverock went into new Garbage containers where rock with coral on it was submerged with the tank water. Oviously put coral on top, and dont fill it up too much, its really heavy. Same goes with the sand, make sure there is nothing in the tank, or else it may stress and crack when moving. He actually broke it down all day and left at 1 in the morning so the moving truck wouldnt get too hot. He moved from LI, New York to Maryland. He said he lost 2 tangs, but they dont do well moving when in adulthood so he was expecting that, everything else survived. Overall, im glad i helped him because i will be doing the same thing in a year or two. Let us know how it works out when the time comes.
