Moving HC?

I am moving every thing to a 20 gal long. I have a nice thick HC carpet I would love to scoop it up as is and set it down in the new tank. It is very well rooted.

How have any of you moved a carpet of HC? Could I do it in chunks? Shovel it out in chunks maybe?

I'd get a nice wide spatula and scoop it out in pieces, like a lasagna or something like that.

Thanks Franzi. I did it that way it worked great. It was way easier then I thought it would be.
