    Hi Nick, your new tank will be great--plenty of room for your corals to grow.
    The only concern with a big water change would be your pH change & it's effect on your fish. Try to match salinity & KH levels to your old water. If you can run the new water with your carbon & zeo-filter[zeolites] for 24hrs before adding your fish, this then would not present stress to the fish. Your corals should have no problems. I would not change the zeolites until the time-frame is 6wks. then, increase the quanity based on your new net vol. Same for the flow rate of the zeo-filter. The new zeo-dosing will correlate, of course, to your net water vol. Maybe you can give us your current zeo-dosing amounts with your current net vol. & give us the new net vol. for adjustment of your zeo-doses. Bob
