Maya has it right. I watched a friend of mine move her well established 90 gallon reef from Louisiana to Georgia..granted she had a horse trailer to help with the size. Essentially, she drained the tank as far as she could and placed her liverock, corals and anemones in one layer so everything remained submersed. She used styrofoam coolers with air bubblers for the fish and stuck those in the bed of the truck, keeping everything tightly together by packing hay bales around the coolers. She had a few guys move the tank and who knows how much liverock, plus the water, into her trailer and again, cushioned everything with hay bales. She moved mid-summer but through the judicious use of frozen gel packs packed around everything, she was able to keep temps normal for the 8 hour trip.

I saw the tank about a week after she moved it and it was like it was never moved.
