Welcome to the site!
Wow, it's hard reading you post with no punctuation.
Nine fish in that sized tank is going to be a problem. The grouper needs at least a 300 G tank.
I would start by mixing up some water and do a 30% PWCs until the nitrItes come down. That is a super high number for nitrItes.

Even 7.5 nitrItes is really high for a tank with rock from an existing tank. Are you sure you don't mean nitrAtes? If so, that's not a big deal.

Regarding advice... I'm not really sure what you're asking about. You're switching tanks - is there something specific you're wondering about?

Did you transfer your Old Sand over from your old tank?

I'd look at adding about 65 more pounds of live rock once you get everthing straightened out.

I missing it, other than your chem params being low being low (unless that's what they were in the old tank) which will stress the crap outta your inhabitants what's the panic? I also prefer my temp to be up a bit.

You say what survived, does that imply some didn't?
