You will be fine. Most of the most of the bacteria is in the filters so as long as you dont let the filter media dry out I believe you will be ok. My understanding is that the main problem you could encounter with a massive water change would be the possibility of a change in the ph. As long as the ph is the same, you could do a 100% water change and be ok, using a declorinator.

Looks like you already have a tank underneath your 240. I think also you should leave some of the aquarium water in with the garbage can that the gravel is gonna go into so that the bacteria there doesn't die. I've heard a lot of the bacteria lives in the gravel and you should be able to keep that living. I was also thinking of using this garbage can idea when moving my tank when my house gets tented for termites.

Do you think 80 gallons of tank water is enough to put back in with fresh??? I have done a 50%-75% water change on the 240 before and it didnt bother the fish or and cycle??
There is some bacteria in the gravel, almost none in the water.
That's basically what I was trying to say, that your bacteria is in your gravel. That's all...HTH...
