Switching out my stand

I currently have a 65g tank sitting on an old dresser. I finally finished my stnad and am ready to do the switch. I have about all the tubs( storage totes) ready for the fish and plants. I plan on putting my filters on the totes to keep the bacteria alive and help the fish. My question is how long do I have on the plants. I am disabled and this will likely take me all day if not a day and half to finish. Sometimes I need to stop and take a break so I dont get hurt..If I were to switch the stands, but am unable to replant the tank and restock the same day, will everything be ok.

Thoughts!!

I think you will be ok...if you think about it, a lot of times things aren't planted when in transit, which tends to be even longer. Might be some adjustment but I wouldn't rush it just because of the plants. Just keep everything wet.

I was more worried about the fish...They will be in a tote with two filters going...they should be good for a day or two as well...

I would think so, again, fish can go through the shipping process with much less. Just get the largest totes you can. Good luck!
