    Thanks Frans and Johan,
    The fish are moving about 5 roads away.The plan is to set up a 5000 litre porta pool on the other side,take about 2500 litre from the tank and put it in the porta pool(I have a 500 litre container and can make a few trips) then when my tank is half full,take the sand out and put that in the porta pool,then the rocks and finally transport the fish.Hook the skimmer up to the porta pool and streams and heaters.
    Then go to the tank room and strip everything off the walls so that the main movers can do their thing the next day.
    We also need to move two DSB`s down the road,not sure on how to do this without massive loss of basterial life.
    Any help for the above would be appreciatted

    Unfortunately Flappy your dsb are way to heavy to just move them in the tanks that glass wont hold is it maybe possible to move them in the metal stands that they are inn, if thats not possible the onl other solution may be to slide them off their stands and onto thick like 50mm wooden bases then move them on the wooden bases. If this is possible there should be no loss of life.
