Alright I'm calling in the experienced guys. I need to move this tank. I'm also moving another but I know how to move a freshwater.

This tank is just going upstairs of the house (to my new room and it's final resting place for a long time)

I want to avoid killing anything so even a step by step process is appreciated. None of my corals have attached to my LR yet so I don't have to worry about that.

Buckets and back strength. There isn't any difference between fresh and salt. Keep everything wet and move.

Maybe an air stone for your clown and inverts if it takes a while?

Thank Hank. It's just a 10g wrangler with the help of another person it shouldn't take long.

It shouldn't be. That'd be a long time in a bucket. If it's a move it is just remove water, transport, and replace.

Did you move this tank today?
How did it go?
Hank got you covered.
Just move stuff into buckets so they don't too shaken up and move the tank(it is just like fresh water).

Very ever so slightly problem... MY FILTER ISNT WORKING!

Everything is moved and I plug in the filter and it's not working! It's not doing anything. Yes I've tried multiple different outlets I know it is getting power!

That's a problem. Did you pit an air stone in for the fish?

I've been messing with it forever and as soon as I post it magically starts working... My luck.. False alarm.

The impeller was a little stuck. One good poke and it's spinning again. This also is a sign I'm going to clean the filter on the next water change
