moving corals

I am setting up a new aquarium...which is already set up and has to be moved...what do I do with my corals in the meantime? Can they be added when the fish are ready to go in? I have a friend with a decent size reef tank, I can probabally house them there if I had to...

Are we talking about moving it to a differnt place within the hosue or are we talking about moving as in moving to a new house?

When moving the tank place the corals in buckts and keep them covered with tank water. Then put them back in once the tanks setup.

about the tank...

We are buying a tank that is already set up, getting rid of the water and taking everything else with it...wet dry, live rock. lights you name it...and setting it up in our house.

Move the corals just like you would move the fish. Set the tank up at the new location and add the corals as your adding water back into the system.

You should transport as much of the water as you can. This will aid in keeping the live rock, and sand wet as well as give your fish and corals someplace to sit while you transport and setup the system.
