Put them in coolers and drop an air stone in it as soon as you reach your destination so they have oxygen while setting your tank back up. Set your tank up, let your fish go and cover the tank to keep it dark for a day.

Don't feed them today or tomorrow. Keep your filters wet and your substrate in old tank water so you aren't killing the bacteria.

Don't try to move your tank with decorations or water in it. It puts too much stress on the tank and only takes a few minutes to empty it completely.
