Does this make sense? Anything I should add or do differently? I am thinking about introducing berghia to combat all that aiptasia.

Thanks for the thoughts!

1) breakdown 60 gallon tank "Main"
- drain some water into buckets
- catch misc critters (starfish, shrimp, crabs, snails)
- place live rock in buckets covered with water
- place live sand in buckets covered with water
- disconnect all plumbing
2) Transport home
3) temporary transfer to 55 gallon tank "Holding"
- add/build PVC frame for live rock
- add live sand and water
- add live rock and water
- release misc critters (starfish, shrimp, crabs, snails)
- add remaining water (discard 5 gallons)
4) Setup "Holding" tank
- connect CPR Bak Pak 2
- add 2 powerheads for circulation
5) Cleanup "Main" tank and stand
- Paint stand
- clean/rinse out tank
- remove all corraline algae from tank walls
- address any scratches in the acrylic
6) Test plumbing
7) breakdown 55 gallon tank "Holding"
- drain some water into buckets
- catch misc critters (starfish, shrimp, crabs, snails)
- place live rock in buckets covered with water
- place live sand in buckets covered with water
- disconnect all plumbing
8) final transfer to 60 gallon tank "Main"
- add/build PVC frame for live rock
- add live sand and water
- evaluate live rock (clean and keep or discard)
- clean live rock with brush (remove hair algae + Aiptasia)
- add live rock and water
- add remaining water (add additional 5 gallons)
- release misc critters (starfish, shrimp, crabs, snails)
9) test water
10) transfer contents from 18 gallon tall "Current"
- add live rock
