    Hi Guys,

    I bought a complete setup from one of the forum members.

    About the setup.

    800l tank with sump

    +- 13KG Live rock, I believe there is some shrooms too. Don't know how many though.

    1 x Powder Blue Tang
    1 x Yellow Tang
    1 x Dragonette Blenny
    1 x Jumping Bean
    1 x Pecular clown

    I have to move the tank and contents over the weekend.

    My biggest concern is getting the fish alive from A-B. What would be the best way to to this? I was thinking to collect the livestock first. I'll put the each fish in a seperate plastic bag with 1x oxygen tablet i got from the LFS. I'll use a air pump to inflate the bag and a rubber band to seal it. I'll put the clear bags in other blue bags to make it dark and then put that into a big coolerbox. For the liverock and shrooms i have a 70l plastic tub. I'll fill it with water from the tank and put the rock in there.

    I'm taking the fish to my LFS for time being.

    big cooler box is about your best bet. dont know if you need to bag each fish but may be better. LR can stay out of water for a while.

    Is it safe to use the oxygen tablets?

    You can put the fish in a container together with no problems. No need for O2 tablets if the move will be quick otherwise you can add some

    Goby also put your LR & substrate in a large bucket with water from the tank, once home hook up a heater and keep it aerated, this will speed up your cycling process abit
