I would honestly just find someone such as a LFS to take the damsel off of your hands since most, if not all damsels will outgrow an 8g tank. After that, start with freshly mixed sw, just keep the sand wet and the live rock in a bucket(s) of the old tank water. Water contains little bacteria, so you wouldn't gain much of anything by saving your old water. Read up on fishless cycling in the articles section.
