I've moved tank a few times. Couple years ago I went from a 125g to my current 240g tank. First, I filled my bath tub with the tank water, have some water already made up if your tank water won't do it. Next comes the Live Rock, then the fish, into the bath tub. Powerheads and heaters, into the bath tub. Substrate goes into 5g buckets. Swap tanks around. Have most of the water made up already for the new tank, guessing at what you have in the tub that you can use also. Sand in first, Rock, powerheads, heaters and lastly the fish.
