But I'm one of those ppl that would rather be safe than sorry even tho the tank is basically cycled with the whole transfer
The only BB you will loose if you transfer everything are the BB on the glass of the old tank. Only a very small amount. Up grading like that is just like doing a large water change.

Yes but all my upgrades, IME have been from 20 gallon tanks to 100+gallon tanks & that's a big difference & I need to give the BB some time to colonize

Oh, yes there maybe a small mini cycle but if you move your filter media either into the new filter or the whole old filter itself I don't see a huge problem. Maybe a few of extra PWC for the first week or so. That's what test kits are for.

Yes exactly ^-^
PWC is important
