When I upgraded from my 180gal to my 450gal I was faced with the same situation. After looking at the possible time involved I decided it was a very big risk trying to make this swap while my fish were in a temporary holding container w/temp filter. So I moved the 180gal to a new location first, then took my time setting up the 450gal.

So glad I did as it was 3 weeks before I was done setting up the 450gal; arranging the sump's pvc pipes & hoses out of the way with hose clamps, siliconed the larger display pieces in the tank, etc. I can say the 450gal setup turned out pretty very neat, a thing of beauty if I do say so myself. I hate to think of what would've happened if I tried to rush this the way I wanted to at first.
