What to move first?

I just setup a 30 gallon cube (cycled as of 6/1/06)
4 to 5" dsb aggronite 1-2mm 40 to 50 lbs
50 lbs fiji lr on pvc platforms
(2) maxijet 1200's for circulation
remora pro w/ rio 1400 with pre filter box
2006 jebo odyossey 213 watt HQI MH, (2) 24 watt 03 pc, and moon lights

A few weeks ago i added a clean up crew
10 misc snails
10 blue hermit crabs
1 lettuce nudibranch
1" emerald crab
1 1/2" peppermint shrimp
They have been in there for about 2 weeks.

The nitrate level is about 5 ppm, and i'm going to wait till it comes down.

I'm going to move most of the occupants in a 35 gallon tank i have setup right now to this tank.
It has
Fish: Yellow watchmen, mandarin (not being moved), black and white percula, tomato clown (not being moved)

Inverts: 10 hermit crabs, cleaner shrimp, (2) lr's covered in mushrooms, green button polyp, and leather coral

What should i move first?

I'd move the goby first and let him stake out some territory under the rocks. Almost anything else next except the coral I'm thinking. Wann make sure water parameters hold up after the fish transfer as coral is more sensitive to bad water. Then again, you have some very hardy corals - but I'd still move'm after all new fish are in place. Then I'd do the inverts and the corals last if it were me.
