I just moved multiple large tanks last week. For my salt water I moved all the water in home depot paint buckets along with the rocks and my fish. My freshwater I moved the fish and filter material in the buckets with the tank water and just used tap with prime before i put the fish in. I takes a long time . Just do the fish tanks last and set them up first.

Leave the sand the way it is just barely wet with tank water. When you are ready to pour put the bucket lids on the sand and you won't stir it up
