    I moving in about 2 1/2 months and I was wondering the best way to move my 2 gallon biocube. It's been set up since christmas and currently has fish, inverts, and soft corals. Any help in methods for moving the tank are appreciated, thanks.

    Do you mean 29 gallon bio-cube ?

    Based on my experience moving a reef tank within the same house, I would offer the below tips
    -Don’t move an aquarium with any amount of water in it
    -Reuse about ½ of the existing tank water, make new water for the rest.
    -Keep all the live rock in tank water at all times. 5 gallon pales work great for this
    -Move your corals in a different container than the fish and inverts
    -I would suggest replacing your substrate, or taking this opportunity to go “bare bottom”
    -Be careful to acclimate your corals, fish, and inverts to the temp of the water slowly.
    -Take this opportunity to do a very good cleaning on your equipment like the return pump, powerheads, skimmer….. etc.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
