Lovely assortment of fish. That Regal tank is so large and fat. Looks very happy. Love all the damsels. Must be a lively tank. Good luck with the move. Hope everyone makes it just fine. That will be extra lovely as a reef. Looking forward to its evolution.

Good to see that everyone made the trip just fine. Looks like a really active and colorful tank. Did you move it yourself? I'm just about to move houses and I'm hiring someone to move my reef tank (and the three FW tanks I kept). I've moved reef tanks before and it's a HUGE job! Congrats on your new home.

Many years ago, I moved a rather large, well-established reef tank. Since most of the rock was covered with corals, it was impossible to get back in the same configuration. I just restacked as best as I could and chalked it up to a loss on the corals that ended up upside down or buried. I was amazed a year later when almost ALL of them had gradually reappeared on top of the rocks again. Your tank will rebound just like that. The move was merely a "storm on the reef." Sorry about your Powder Brown, though. Those are such lovely fish.

I just moved mine last week, didn't think the corals were going to make it bc i had them in buckets for like 2 days but they're still looking good.
