Glad it went well. Personally I wouldn't move a glass tank with water/sand in it. All it takes is a quick jerking movement, such as when first lifting it, to crack the glass under weight. Seen it happen more than once, plus I still enjoy back pain 24/7 for last 23 years from moving a large glass tank.
I have done it with acrylic tanks, but it still makes me nervous.

You need to be sure algae won't be a major problem in the new location, I assume it will be getting more sunlight, before you completely commit to it, otherwise you may be moving them again in a few months.

Hi all:
I thought I got rid of snails in my two year old 40 gal. But I cleaned a filter Aquatop 400 and found a few hundred in it small things. I even had assassins snails in the tank and I have broken shells all over the place as well. I plan on cleaning the tank and changing the substrate. I won't change the filters ( two of the aquatop 400's a sponge filter and two moving bed filters. I plan on keeping 20% of the water (I'm also dealing with ammonia) rocks, wood ( which I will boil) and two imitation rock caves. Should I change only half the substrate at one time or just do it all? I have electric blue acaras, bristle nose plecos, and corycats and a shrimp or two
