Moving Corals
I am interested in moving my corkscrew gorgonian with attached african blue hornet Zoo's from my 29 gallon tank with LED's to my 75 gallon tank with power compacts. Is there an easy way to acclimate them to the new tank or is it not worth it? Thanks in advance.

Just cut off a peice of ur coral,this is called a frag and then acclimate the frag to ur new tank like u did to ur old 1 then attach to rock

I am planning on moving the whole piece from 29 to the 75. So should I put the coral in a bowl with water from the 29 and slowly acclimate by adding water from the 75.

Yah take a turkey baster drip in new and out the old but if u frag it u can have the coral in both,plus its easier and if it dies in the new tank you can always cut a little more off
