I feel your stress. We are getting a house so here in about 2-3 weeks we have 2-30g, 2-20g, 1-10g, 2-5g, 1-75G & a 125G to move, get setup again and try to not loose any fish or shrimp. Talking about stress, I get nauseous just thinking about. I even considered not moving due to all the tanks, lol.

I'm with you Micheal. The whole process is terrible.

I think I am going to take the plants and substrate out. I am going to have to move the tank twice within a two week period (complete break down and setting back up). So, hopefully everything will survive...

Don't know about what will survive ,but you surely increased YOUR chances of survival ,by reducing the risk of that glass breaking and spilling your guts out....

Just be glad you only have to move a 12 long, here in the next few months I will be trying to move a 33 long with several hundred CRS/CBS in it. Still havent figure it out for sure.
