Alright, I'm hard pressed to get a 20G-Long or other side tank. My dilemma, I'm afraid of it thriving and moving out of my apartment when it's just flourishing. I find that it could be difficult to move and I may lose a lot and have to re-cycle things like that. Is it really hard to move fish?

It's a lot of work. Depending how far you are moving, and how (movers, or yourself in a car or van), and how many and how large the tanks are.

So lets say this:
10 Gallon - Stocked to capacity + Live plants + gravel
+20/29 Gallon - Stocked to capacity + Live plants + sand
Assuming maximum 1 hour away. (I would likely move within city).

I'm mainly afraid of getting my tank all set up after a few months, having for maybe a year, then moving. Seems like a lot for fish to go through and the chances of losing fish/plants feels rough.

I wouldn't want to be without my fish for that long (up to a year).

Moving small tanks is not difficult, but there are things that have to be done so on moving day you are dealing mainly with fish.
