You may not experience a cycle if you move everything.

Can't help you with drilling as I don't have any drilled tanks.

Ok sounds good, I will try to make sure that I move all the rock with having it out of the water too long.
For the old sand I am thinking that I will put the old sand in the sump for now, so that I will keep the BB and then I will take it out slowly over time to not cause a cycle.

I'm hoping to do it all this weekend so I will try to post pictures next week. I am in the process of running the RO/DI to get enough water to fill the tank but I just have a small 50 gallon per day so it is taking a while....

Might be a good idea drain the 20 down to the top of your rock work putting that water into the 40. Next fill the 40 up half way with fresh saltwater and then start moving rock from the 20 straight into the 40. That should eliminate any die off potential.

That makes sense, I was thinking of buckets but with my luck I would tip at least one over, and my wife lose it lol
