Make sure the temperature is the same. If it's not all the same water you should drip acclimate.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

It may not be a bad idea to put them in the 30 gallon with a filter running if it is going to take you a long time.

You could fill it with water from your main tank so thier would be no acclimation issues, fire up filter , and then you could just take your time moving the main, aquascaping, and giving the sand some time to settle.
