I want to get a 90 or bigger tank up and running within a week. Can I take say half of the water out of my 80 gallon and put it into the new tank, transfer all the gravel and filters and everything to the new tank. And not have to cycle it again? the 80 gallon is traded. so i want a bigger tank.

It can be done.. but theres alot more bacteria needed to fully cycle the new taNK. Just monitor it within 24 hrs and check all levels.

I just did something similar. I used one filter, a little old gravel,(bout 5 lbs) and some biospira. Ammonia and nitrite levels never went higher than .25 ppm
Oh i switched from two tanks two a 190 And put 14 p's 300 gold fish and 2 pleco's in it.
