The rule of thumb is you can move a tank that's no more than 1/3 full.

So... siphob 1/3 of the water into the tank on the floor.

Save as much as the water as you can in other containers (new
store bought plastic garbage cans work, or older plastic garbage cans
cleaned very well they sterilized with bleach and then with alcohol).

Move the old tank off the table.

Move the new tank to the table.

Put the water back in.
