    first question, how big is your tank?

    If bigger than 250L, put in a dedicated tank move day. This is a full day job easily.

    How many fish and corals? How far do you need to move them?

    Good luck on the move - if you keen on selling some of your livestock and coral let me know. Always easier to 'transport' less

    Using the same type of containers to move the water, liverock, corals and fish in, is easier. Less issues with temperature drop.

    And set aside a day for this. Believe me it takes longer than you think
