Finished moving tank and put it into place. Almost completely finished with plumbing just a few more connections to finish up tomorrow. Tank was filled with tap with bleach to sanitize. will drain and refill with saltwater when all plumbing is in place and leak free. Currently no leaks.

Revision to Methods
Instead of just having a sand bottom to the tanks and Trash cans Jon recommend that I fill 2 gallon buckets that are 9" deep with sand and place them throughout the tank so that when the specimens need to bee transported I can bring up the bucket with sand hopefully not disturbing the specimen to much and transfer to a trash can. The specimen will be in the same substrate that it is used to hopefully making it easier to take samples.
Will also make it easier to collect substrate.
