Let us know how it goes. I still think that 2 gallon is too much just because of the sloshing and swaying of the water but it could work. Is a good tank to experiment with because it is inexpensive.

To be honest, I am kinda paranoid about moving my tanks even across the room and won't leave any water except what I can't syphon out of the tank when I move them.

WHen I get to the new place, I was going to rinse the blue sponge thing inside the filter because theres alot of brown stuff on it that I think is clogging it up (aquarium water rinsing of course). But wouldnt all this moving around and cleaning restart the cycling process?

you may find that you have a mini cycle,
test the water,and let everyone know what the results are.

ok, I just moved in and unpacked. I have had success in moving the aquarium with the gravel and 20% water still in the tank. Although I was successful, I DO NOT recommend doing this. As I was transporting the tank, I could feel the pressure on the glass as if it was about to burst. Im guessing it barely made it. No cracks are yet to be found but it doesnt mean that it COULDNT of happened. 8)

Check the silicone and all the glass very carefully, I worry that the structural integrity may be compromised and that it may still burst.
