Or can I just transfer my entire tank to the bigger tank and slowly add dry rock?

I also moved in one day. Moved everything to containers, had water mixed and ready. I used my same sand and I did have a nitrate spike, no ammonia though. Had to do a couple of big water changes the next week but no major problems. Everyone made it fine. They love their new home.

I went from a 90 to a 210. I put nothing new in. I combined the rock and sand from each. I didn't know better as far as the sand goes but as I said everyone is fine and that was 4 months ago.

When upgrading, id make sure you keep atleast 1 lbs of rock and sand per gallon.

Ok, but if we switch over can we add rock slowly without any cycling happening

Here is my tank set up now in the 38g we are probably going to wait a week to switch things to the 75g. We have to get some dry rock first.
