If the 125 is in the final spot you will be keeping it, transfer all the water filters and fish from the 60 directly to it. Add the remaining water (treated of course) and sit back and enjoy. It would be like doing a 50% WC
. Don't add any new fish for at least a month so the BB can catch up for the tank volume.
