Moving our 1yo 10g nano to a bigger tank, what's the safest way?

We've had our 10g AGA for about a year now and after thinking about it for a while we have decided to upgrade to a larger tank and a sump. We are getting a custom tank made 36"x12"x12", with a sump with space for a refugium. Total water volume will be just above 30g.

 

What's our best method of moving the existing 10g tank into the new home? We will be adding some liverock and most likely purchasing new substrate. We have a few small corals we want to survive the move.

I would set up your new tank first and let it cycle, then move everything over. That's probably the best way. Easiest way would probably be add substrate, bring the water & salinity to the same temp as your existing tanks and then adding rock and livestock to new system. Your rock is what carries the majority of your biological filtration anyways. Either should work fine. I'd feel safest with #1 though. JMO
