Im getting ready to move my 39 gallon mixed reef next week. Has softies, lps, sps and 40 lbs of live rock. All HOB filtration and skimming.

Moving into a 75 gallon aqueon with a trigger ruby 30 sump that has been running for about a week and a half with 80 lbs of carib sea life rock, 80 lbs of natures ocean live sand. I dosed it with two bottles of biospira, took a filter pad off my old tank and let it run in the sump for a few days and also fed a few cubes of mysis shrimp.

I was planning on taking 10 gallons of old tank water from the 38 to the 75 over tomorrow to it for a water change. Test to make sure all parameters are similar and on the day of the move, getting 6, 5 gallon buckets with lids and taking over all coral and livestock along with the 25 ish gallons of water and placing them/introducing them and adding the 25 gallons of water to the new tank as a water change. Tank inhabitants are a large rock urchin, 2 clowns, a yellow watchman, coral.beauty, fire shrimp and very small clean up crew. I will be transferring my cheato from my hob reactor to the sump refugium with a kessil tuna refugium light. Does this plan sound.ok? Any alterations or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Obtain and utilize a tub like a Rubbermaid type. Place all coral and tank water in tub. Add a cup of water from 75 gallon every 15 minutes 8 times. Doing this will acclimate coral to new tank. Reduce lights to blue on introduction as you transfer.
After all coral is in, add carbon to reduce any toxins released
