Can, but I'd still wait the 8-10 weeks. In that time he can ensure that when he does transfer the livestock over he has them going in a palace instead of a house .

First worry about quaranting the fish and moving your tank to the location you want.

Dosing you won't have to do too much until you get some corals in there, but you still have a good 2-3 months until that happens.

I dose two part from Bulk Reef Supply recipe 1 though and marine snow.

If you want to do everything right this time then stop and figure it out before you take any action. That means read a lot and figure out what you have and where you need to go and how to get there. Asking for opinions is just a start. You really need to learn about this hoby and it will save you a lot of headaches. Jumping to the first advice you get may not be the right solution.

no need to take the sand out, drain tank down and move tank and stand to new location. or just get regular sand, no need for live sand, when re-startting the new tank run it at a low salinity to help kill off any parisite's, wait 8 weeks after tank has been moved then start to raise salinity back up then re-add fish, do qt them in mean time and personally my method for any new fish i add is, i dump fish and store water into container, add pro-cure to water, add airstone, let sit for atleast half hour, then tank over to tank and start drip acclimating, if where your buying fish from has a cichald tank ask for a bag of that water and do a fw dip before starting the previous method i stated. just make sure after you have acclimated the fish that you dont get any water from it into tank if you scoop with net make sure net doesnt go into tank water
