Hi Chris, first off can i just say I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.
As for for the issue of your fish, I've never actually done this before but if I was in your shoes, with four tanks, you have 2 choices in my mind. Either drop all the fish in the 35.... move the rest over and set them up asap and then transport all your fish over.
Or I would I would most likely buy another 10 gal, move one set of fish over, take and set their tank, move fish, and then just repeat this, as I'd imagine putting them all in one would provide some severe compatibility issues normally.
As for the moving, I read the best way is in the dark. So a large bucket, lid on, and then just as stably yet quickly as possible.
Normally people don't feed their fish for a day or 2 before either to try and stop the fish excessively fouling due to the stress of the move.
As per I'd say take my advise with a pinch of salt as I'm very new to this and haven't actually had to go through a move yet.
