Arrow Moving 65 gal to basement

I have a 65 gallon tnak, well established for over a year, with a Kole Tang, 2 O. Clowns, a royal gramma and flame angel. After a while, cracks in my sump are going to force me to change it out from under the aquarium. (It doesn't fit through the doors of the stand.) I don't have the time to cycle new water because I don't have anywhere to hold my current fish. How would you recommend me to save the water and move the sump out of the bottom?

You could always remove the water to a container to a level which allows you to slide the aquarium to access the sump and then put the water back in after the repair is complete.

Yeah but my concern is, would that affect the chemical makeup of the water and my fish be able to go back in?

I don't know that much about saltwater, so I won't advise you... but keeping the water in another temporary place for a little bit while you switch out sumps shouldn't affect the chemistry as far as I know.
