The more water that can be syphoned from the main tank to the QT the better. It will allow for better parameters right from the start and you will not need to re-acclimate the fish to the new tank. It will however not transfer any bacteria. Best suggestion is take something from the 110 gal filtration system if possible. I would not use the CC or rock for transfering the bacteria but rather any filter pads, a few bio balls or something else that can later be discarded.

Ok sounds good, I can take a few bio balls. My only other concern now is if I take almost all the water I need from the display tank then I have to re-fill that with new water for the crabs/snails/starfish/cucumber. I guess that shouldn't be too much of a problem because I'll still have everything else that has the good bacteria on it such as all my bio balls cc etc... Any last suggestions before I make my trip to the pet store? Thank you sooo much, I don't know what I would have done without your help

BTW, I'll probably get a canister filter for the new tank, or a Marineland 400, I can't spend thta much more on another wet/dry setup

Consider it a large water change :P . Just be sure to properly match salinity, temp and ph so you do not shock the invert population. Otherwise you should be good to go. You really don't need to go to all the fuss of another complete tank set up but that is up to you. As long as there is enough room, filtration and a heater, the holding tank does not need to be glass. Any clean plastic bin/rubbermaid tote will do.
