Moving Coral

I don't have a marine tank, however I have a question that I would like answered...

Marine tank can have coral and the like. How is coral moved from tank to tank? I get the impression that some types are very soft, and presumably do not take kindly to being moved around. So how is this done, and what are the considerations?

Thanks in advance.

When I move a coral from one tank to another, I cag it like I would a fish making sure it has enough water to stay under water in a bag large enough for it's size, and then acclimate the same way I would a fish when I get it home. I've never had any issues.

Do you mean bag, or are you refereing to some mystical method of transfer that I have not yet discovered?
