I have a 50 gal
with about 60-70 lbs live rock, a cucumber, a few snails & crabs, 3 clowns, watchman goby, yellow tang, flame angel, mandarinfish and a grouper along with a clam, some corals, polyps etc... I am upgrading to a 210 gal
. I will be moving the filter (a fluval fx5) from the 50 gal
over to the 210 and have added a new filter too. My question is can I move everything over without cycling the new tank/filter first. If I move the mature filter over and then add the rocks first, will I be able to add my fish, inverts and corals over the next day without going through a cycle?
