Moving 90gal
« on: March 23, 2012, 03:48:02 pm »
Going to build me a new tank stand today for my 90g tank 60"x18" and then move it to a new place tomorrow. Any suggestions on moving corals??  It's a very short drive if that helps (couple min away) thanks and will post my build

I would keep the sand in the tank with a little water. put the rock in 5 gallon buckets or any container that will hold water. the key is saving the water that is in your tank and not disturbing the sand bed.

I deff will be saving 98% of the water I already have 14 buckets and a sump that am going to use as a water holder. My main concern is the corals!  Also I don't have a DSB do I still need to not disturb the sand?

Just be careful the sand bed can store a lot of nasty stuff. but here is a tip, get a few flower pot bases or something else, and use them to lay on the sand bed. this will help keep it clear and the sand in place when refilling.
