Okay so I may have found someone who is breaking down there tank and going to sell me all their Lr and Ls and cycled water. So is this an okay plan of action?

Put the newly purchased Lr and Ls in the 55g. Switch over the wet/dry system from the 20g to the 55g get that running.

Bag everybody up from the 20g and start drip acclimating. (Testing and monitoring along the way)

Switch over the rest of our Lr and Ls to the 55g.
Get everyone acclimated safely and continue to run the wet/dry system while we set up the 20g for a fuge. Then just swap out the sumps and pumps and we are good to go?


Is this rushing things?

No, just drained the tank put corals in three buckets fish and inverts in two transfered the sand did the rock scape then added the old water then the new water and Fish, corals and inverts. I see it as doing a large wc I did place my filter media in the sump (bio wheels)
