Converting my 46 gallon bowfront FOWLR to a 75 gallon bowfront


I am getting ready to upgrade to my bigger tank. I have a few questions before I make my move.

About 6 months ago I changed from a 37 gallon cube to the 46 gallon bowfront, and it went smooth for the most part. The difference was only 9 gallons, so I acted as if it was a water change. The difference with my new change is going to be 26 gallons. So just adding water like I did before worried me because it would be as if I did a 50% water change.

What should I do to convert my FOWLR tank to a larger tank that would be the most efficient and safest for my critters? Also, I was eventually going to convert my tank to a reef setup. Anyone have some advice in doing this? Yes, I have the proper lighting, sump with refugium, powerheads and protein skimmer.
