Combining 5 Gallon and 15 Gallon into 35 Gallon

I am getting a 35 gallon tank and I currently have a 5 gallon (2 guppies) and 15 gallon tank (3 barbs) up and running both cycled. If I move most of the decor and filters to the new tank should I be OK?

Should be fine. Just check levels for the next few days, you might see a mini-cycle, should be easily managed with an extra pwc or 2.

+1

As long as you use the same substrate (always keeping it wet) and same filter media you might not even see a cycle. Don't worry about using the same water as it will do nothing for you.
