Truly pondering on the best way to do it ycnibrc, the 60 gal was my first reef tank, and would hate to lose any species!
what is the best way to transfer without hurting everything????
you advice would be greatly appreciated...

wont you still have a cycle once you get the other tank up and running. Even if you use the same live sand and LR there will be alot of ammonia and nitrates wont there? from kicking up all the nasty stuff, im not an expert so imjust saying fromw hat happened to me in the passed when i Transfered a tank ammonias and nitrates went sky high cause all the garbage in the sand/rocks got mixed around.
