Aw, man. Yeah, breaking down an aquarium is never fun...

Sounds like you have it planned out pretty well. Hopefully the weather will hold out for you. Coolers might be a better option instead of the 5 gallon buckets if it is cold out...

Moving a tank is never much fun (except that when you put it back together you can redo that thing you've been meaning to redo for a while. Everyone has one lol)

Good thinking Sam! I think a cooler would be better if it's cold, but you really wont know until like the week before the move...

Are you moving far or is it something like moving to a different apartment/house in the same city?

different apartment in the same city so it wont be to bad , only thing im disappointed about is that I finally got my dwarf hair grass growing like crazy and starting to carpet my tank and I know moving it is gonna set me back

Well finally got moved and it was pretty successful only lost one albino cory and he went awol somewhere between point A and point B, Im pretty sure I wil find a little cory cat mummy in my truck some time in the future. also I threw out all my plants I had BBA break out right before them move so I figured it was a good time to start over . also I didnt realize how bad my trumpet snail infestation was until I removed all the plants , there is probably a thousand or so of them so im looking for some assassin snails

Wow that's a lot of snails!

Glad to hear the move went mostly ok

If your plants aren't sensitive (mosses, Val's, etc...) you can excel treat them to kill the BBA I had to do that n my tank, swords, ferns and most of my mosses handled it well. It did melt my Val's though but they rebounded nicely.

There's a very small amount of BBA left in my 55 but its quite manageable and usually on the tips of the Val's that get trimmed weekly

Glad the move went well (overall). Sucks about the plants, though. On the other hand, it's nice to have a fresh start...
