Moving tank

I moved two 20 gallon tanks about 8 years ago. I took the water out except
for about 4 inches... left all fish and plants in. Put them in the car...
drove a couple of miles and carried them into the new house. Added new
water, conditioning it as usual. No problems with tanks, plants or fish.
Now I would probably be more paranoid and put the tanks on a piece of
plywood to move them. But I wouldn't bother breaking down a 20 gallon to
move it. Drive slowly and carefully coming to smooth gentle stops. Just my
opinion. BTW, make sure your heater is off for awhile before lowering the
water level.
