When I've upgraded with existing stock, which I've done many times now, I've just moved 50% of the water, sometimes the substrate, sometimes not, usually the decor, all of the filter media, and the fish to the new tank. Voila, instant cycle. I've never even gone into a mini cycle.

Hahaha!! Great minds...

Also painting the back of tank a deep aqua blue this weekend. Picked up 2 cans of spray!! Whoo Hoo!!! Can't wait!! She ordered me a 15 pack of Cichlid stone caves. I'm gonna cut back on the decor to allow for more swimming room.
