Do you have a friend with a tank?
Put your stuff in your friends tank. Or get a small tank they would be ok in for a few days. But take the live rock with you in pails. Make your move then once your there set up tank and have your friend send you your inhabitants. Leave your friend some money for packing and shipping.

Idea from page 2.

I finally convinced my wife to let me sell the fish, but the corals will be going with us. I will light them at night and do water changes on the way there.

Just an update, I know it's been over a year. All my corals made the trip just fine, even the snails, emerald crabs and hermit crabs made the trip. We did have some minor breaking on some of the corals. I actually had a green mushroom that never would multiply while we lived in OK, since the move it has flourished and now we have about 15-20. So cross country moves can be accoumplished!
