  1. Pete, the goal here is to avoid shocking your corals. So you want to try and match the conditions as closely as possible and gradually introduce them to the new/future/desired state. Matching water chemistry is very important, as is matching lighting intensity. A PAR meter will help you with that. Try to start the corals out in an area of similar PAR to where they were in the old tank…and gradually move them into the spot you want, as you are able to confirm they are adjusting well.
