Transferring SPS corals

I'm thinking about going from a regular 60 gallon to a rimless one. My main concern is I now have about 16-18 SPS corals from little frags to larger colonies. It wouldn't be a good thing to loose one or more in the process of transferring. I'm not worried about LPS and softies. Is it something worth trying for aesthetic purposes? Light, filtration and even aquascape will all be the same.

My tank is a rimless 20 and it's nice but not worth moving everything. Especially if it will just be the same once moved

Thanks. You're right. Too much work and risk for not much improvement. Was just kind of itching for it. Lol. Gonna use that $ towards my next upgrade instead.
