When I got my Moop colony, they were located in north Jersey. That was a 1hr ride to bring them back to my house. The rubbermade worked great with 24 trohps in it. I just added some ammo lock and stresscoat to be with the original tank water just to be sure that there would be no problems. Everything worked out fine with that move. Keep us updated.

I have always used 40g trash cans lined with a hefty bag. I also use a battery powered pump for air and keep the lid on.

I would either move the tanks the last thing that way everything else is moved and somewhat in place. Plus it stresses the fish out less because most of the moving activity is done. In and around the fishes tank set up.Resulting in less stress for the fish.. Rather then moving them first and having to move stuff in and out around the set up.. Plus you will not feel as rushed to get the tank set up, as you would if done first. Just my opinion.
