Switching my 70gal to a 90gal

I just purchased a 90gal marineland reef ready tank and am wondering what the best way to switch everything over would be?

When I upgraded from a 40 to a 90, I added everything all at once and dosed with prime. All deco substrate and fish.

I placed all my corals in tank water ina very shallow rubbermaid sweater under the bed kinda container while I did my 55g to 125g move.

It's shallow and wide enough to set your corals so you can take your time doing the rest of the move. You can even set a light over it if you wanted.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
