Place your fish in separate containers or bags and move and acclimate them just like you would new fish you just bought.

The tank-unless you empty it to move and this is the best way. But if you can't- I would empty all the water and place the tank on a board to carry/transfer the tank to the new place. Especially with 20gal and large glass tanks-the added weight from the substrate, residual water, decorations...etc... One wrong move/twist can split a seal and you could have a leaky mess.
