Hey im about to start to upgrade from my 3 ft fish tank (in the picture above) sorry if iv posted in the wrong place ! The question is , is when i buy my new fish tank , i want to put it where my old one is , whats the best way to do this as im going to need to cycle it right ?... Am i going to have to drain all my water in my current tank , move it and fill it back up and leave it there while my new fish tank is where the old one was and cycle it there or is there an easier way? Thanks!

You should be able to put all the media from your current tank into the new tank plus deco and gravel and the new tank should be instantly cycled to the same bioload as your current tank and then add more fish a few at a time till you have it the way you wanted. That is assuming that your replacing the current tank and dismanteling the old one. Alison

It'll be fine. Assuming you're taking all your fish along with the media then you will be just fine. Give it a week after the transfer and monitor for ammonia before adding any fish.
