    Sell your current tank, buy a new one in CT, set it up and and fly down the livestock. I am sure there are plenty people that will babysit the livestock for you until you are ready for it.

    First, how big a system do you need to move?
    Ask your LFS to keep the next shipment boxes. Use those boxes and ask the LFS to pack all your fish and corals. Then ship them down.
