Alright I'm calling in the experienced guys. I need to move this tank. I'm also moving another but I know how to move a freshwater.

This tank is just going upstairs of the house (to my new room and it's final resting place for a long time)

I want to avoid killing anything so even a step by step process is appreciated. None of my corals have attached to my LR yet so I don't have to worry about that.

Buckets and back strength. There isn't any difference between fresh and salt. Keep everything wet and move.

Maybe an air stone for your clown and inverts if it takes a while?

It shouldn't be. That'd be a long time in a bucket. If it's a move it is just remove water, transport, and replace.

Did you move this tank today?
How did it go?
Hank got you covered.
Just move stuff into buckets so they don't too shaken up and move the tank(it is just like fresh water).

Very ever so slightly problem... MY FILTER ISNT WORKING!

Everything is moved and I plug in the filter and it's not working! It's not doing anything. Yes I've tried multiple different outlets I know it is getting power!

That's a problem. Did you pit an air stone in for the fish?

I've been messing with it forever and as soon as I post it magically starts working... My luck.. False alarm.

The impeller was a little stuck. One good poke and it's spinning again. This also is a sign I'm going to clean the filter on the next water change

I'm afraid my skunk cleaner didn't handle the move very well.

He's barely moving and his tail is gone!

I moved him as gently as possible with a big cup and trying to catch a shrimp in a tank...

I really don't know what to do moving is rough...

I hate how fragile they are.

Harder to keep than SPS.

Caleb! Caleb! Caleb!
First let me say awesome job on your 1st salt tank.
Problem is YOU HAVE ME SERIOUSLY THINKING OF SCRAPING MY 40B Cryptoheros build for a 20ish cube salt build. All kidding aside this is a great thread. I read through the whole thing and have only 1 question about my Ecoxotic light but Ill start my own thread when the time comes.
Great job.

Mike! I was about to ask what you were doing here

Do it man! It's a whole new world and it fascinates me every day. Just have to watch out for that bristle worm! I saw it earlier and it's easily 5 times longer than that it's first appearance.

Anyway I would shake your hand for reading this entire messy thread!

I just read this whole thread. I love your tank! I hope to have a gorgeous SW tank like yours someday, hopefully once I finish college.

Thank you! It's been a long road and a serious learning curve but when you can sit down and look at the beauty of your creation it's all worth it.

I hope I can watch you build yours one day.
