hey guys

Im going to be moving in the next 3-4 month and I have 2 tanks that need to come with me.
I have a 45 and a 40 gallon tank.

Whats the best way to move them???...

Get two big tubs and but the live rock in one and fish in another and transport like that? and will the tank recycle?

I don't want to cause harm to any of my fish there my babies.

Please give me some pointers or suggestions on how to move them.

how far are you moveing? the tubs idea is the way to go make sure you get a power head in the tubs and a heater.

now the tricky part is sand in the tanks if you take out all the water or leave a tiny bit of water to cover the sand and trnasport a short distance you should be good. but if you disturb the sandbed all the bactieria and stuff in the sand bed will leech up and cause of cycle once you place new water in the tank from what i understand anyway.
