you should use the existing tank water to transport them in since they are already acclimated to that water. you can use new conditioned water to set up the tank in it's new location and then acclimate the fish to the new water just as you would when bringing them home from the pet store.

If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
