I use a siphon. You can pour it like quarryshark, or if you have extra cash you could invest in a small pump. But i wouldn't spend the money. Just either pour your water or use a siphon. The only thing bad about using a siphon is that you have to take in gravity as a factor of transporting the water.

Sorry first-timer89, but I would not use the seaclone. Go for the best up front. You will save lots of Mula in the end. Maybe a Remora.

And I agree with Qshark that you should use at least half of the old water.

I've only been doing this for a few months, but If your levels (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, ph, temp, sg) in the tank are all ok. I'd add the fish to the tank (slowly - search this site for "acclimation". They'll have a better shot than in the tupperware, imo.
