I have to move my 55gal reef tank from my Family room to my Living room. I was going to use the following method.
1. Move livestock to 10Gal QT
2. Move remaining water/rocks to 5gal buckets.
3. Remove tank.
4. Relocate stand.
5. Replace tank, water livestock.
I was going to leave the substrate in the tank. There will be a considerable disturbance to the substrate. What will this effect?
I will have four people that are going to help with the move. I expect this whole operation will take several hours.
Any advice would be most helpful.
