Tank transfer or no?

My 20 gallon has been set up for 2 and half weeks and has cycled. All that's in there is aragonite, live rock, and clean up crew. I have the chance to get a 50g is it to early or to much trouble to transfer now? Or should I wait a few months?

Its better to tranfer as early as possible for the longrun which is what its all about. Id say do it. Also better to drill it for a sump while its empty. Trust me here.

Ditto. Keep the 20 to use for a quarantine tank.

Or use it for the sump. Easy to make and well worth it!

Yeah I was thinking about keeping it for the sump. But I don't really know how they work or what I need
