Hello, I'm buying a 55 gallons reef tank. I will have to move it in a day and I was wondering the best way to keep corals and fish safe and how to get rid of coraline algae in the back glass? I also would like to know if I should clean the sand bed and if I should get rid of the coraline algae off the refugium walls?

thank you very much for your help

as far as the live rock, coral and fish , 5 gallon buckets work best with some air stones and air pumps you can plug in why your cleaning the tank, I would ditch the sand bed and get a new one . a razor blade is the best to scrape the coralline algae off in the paint section theres a long one with a replaceable blade its what I use works great. never done refunium so maybe someone else can help there
good luck

Thank you guys for your answers.

This is how the tank looks like, I believe that coraline in the back and in the equipment (powerheads...) dont look good.

I forgot to mentioned that the tank wont be viewed from both sides but I just find the look of the back glass really bad. (I'm new in this, so you might help me with yuor opinions)

I added black poster board from walmart to the back of mine, you might want to try it as alot of people either paint the back of the tank black or blue, for a couple bucks it's worth a try to see if you like it. Ottherwise carefully scrape it off and use your tanks algae scrubber pad to remove it
