What steps would you take to transfer rocks, corals and fish to a new larger tank? No new rock or stock will be added.

Keep as much as your old water as you can. Keep clams, and corals submerged if you can, get a bucket or bowl to move them in. Move your rocks first from your old system to your new system. You don't have to aquascape now, but make sure there are hiding places for your fish. Lastly move your fish, and then go from there.

Just did mine last week, I moved my rock in garbage cans (which were new) fully under water and a few buckets, all my corals, fish, inverts went into styro-foam containers. I then aqua scaped the tank while i was dripping the fish/inverts/corals and put them in when when they had dripped fully. Still no NH or NO spikes or deaths (knock on wood), it will be 1 week tomorrow
