There really isn't any bactieria in the water, the majority of it's in the filter and substrate. So the most important thing is to switch the filter media and or filter onto the new tank. It you upgrade filters just use the media from the old in the new one for a couple of weeks. This may create a small mini cycle but it shouldnt last more than a couple of days.
