So you use 1/3 of the water to fill in the new tank,
you put 1/3 of the water in containers,
everything else is left in the old tank !

You then swap the tanks,
move the soil in the new tank letting plants floating among fishes in the old one.
Then you put plants in the soil, add the 1/3 of water in the containers and let settle.
Finally, you move the fishes and then the last third of water !
