o Move half the water to buckets

o Move the fish to the buckets (note the water level when complete)

o Remove and rinse any decor

o Gravel vac the rest of the tank

o Remove the gravel with a (new) child's beach shovel

o Move the tank

o Level it up

o Replace the gravel, decor

o Refill the tank to the level noted after step 2 with dechlorinated water at or near the proper temperature.

o Replace remaining water and fish.

I've done it this way several times without a single loss.
