    best would be to get someone to look after all the live stock while you move the tank

    This is no joy, very very hard work and the planning must be on the ball, plan A and B + QT tank up and running before you attempt the move. Eish, why don't you ask your LFS to help you with this one. The livestock is the most important issue, one slip and all gone. Hope you come right Rakabos.
