My tank made the move!

i just wanted to tell every one that ijust moved off to college and i took my 30 gal saltwater tank with me...i didnt have much life to begin with but i made the move with not one casualty...i put all my live rock in a deep rubber made container with about 5 galons of water from my tank and i left a few gallons of water in the tank to keep the sand alive..then i put all my phs, heater and skimmer in a 5gal bucket with about 2 gal. of water to keep any bacteria alive on that...then i filled up 2 5 gal watercontainers that i use to get my ro water in....i managed to save every bit of my water in the move...and i got all of it in my 2 door sebring with room to take my clothes ...now im about to go buy a clown fish and some live rock...just wanted to tellevery one the good news

Good idea keeping the skimmer in water so there is no re-break in period. Good job, good luck.
