Transitioning a tank - tips?


Recommended Posts

In the planning stage of transitioning my 55 community over to my 120 after all is ready. I have seen plenty on youtube about setting up a new cycled tank with existing media etc, but I've never done it before, so just want to make sure I am doing it right.  How would you go about setting up a new tank?

We are using a different filter on the new tank, but I do have some filter media I can move over to the new tank (not sure if it's enough?)

I also plan to reuse 3 large pieces of manzanita that have been in my 55 for about a year - so I know that will carry some of the bacteria as well.

Will this be enough to get it up and running?  Or do we need to let it go through an actual cycle before moving the fish?
