Only 55 lbs. Over 100lbs of rock though. that part is gonna stink too. Plus all the corals have to be taken out too. I'm figuring a few hours to do. :-(

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

get a few small power heads and some 20g rubbermaid containersput all your LR and live stock i nthe containers and let it stay there for a bit. you shouldn't stress out your system to much and would probably be able to keep them liek that for a day if you need to. of course thats if you keep the temp in your house at a stable temp

but in my mixing container i have a nano marineland heater i believe its 15w used for a 2.5g and it keeps the water at a really stable 78* even though there is about 15g of volume

They can live on a tote for a while. I had to put a couple of my fish in one when my old 30 gallon cracked while I got a new tank and made sure it was cycled. I just added the heater and powerhead and some of the live rock from the tank they were in and they were totally happy. Just not much for our viewing pleasure.

Just got back with a bunch of containers. I even got an 18g one whcih will be perfect for water changes.

Now to convince my b/f he'd rather help me move the tank rather than sleep. LOL

I have the 125g empty in the garage. Anyone think I should water test it again? It held for 1 week without a drip.....

Had a SUPER productive day!!! I am sooo excited!

The 125g is now in place in the living room! I also moved the 55g over to the other wall and finally caught that rogue oscellaris and put him in the cube.

Some pictures as i went along. ALSO found a baby serpent star today, how did that get in there? I haven't added rock for MONTHS. I do have a serpent star, but only one. Could it have had a baby? or babies? that would be interesting.....
