Moving HELP!

I will be moving in a few days and I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for moving my 55g reef. I have lots of empty salt buckets, but I am worried about keeping the temp ok...

Check this thread: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...ghlight=moving

How far are you going?

You will want to keep a constant temp using a heater and convertor.

Good luck. Moving is pain, especially when moving a delicate reef tank (right rev?). Five gal buckets and rubebrmaid tubs are your best friend.

I moved my 90 reef twice. Buckets are ok put your rocks wrapped in wet newspaper. That will keep any mushrooms that are attached good will you move. Fish in buckets take them out last should be fine for a 2hr move, but set up your tank first thing when you arrive. I moved 3 rose anemones just in buckets with water from the tank.

Good luck!
