Lots of water changes, kill the lights for a week straight (if no plants) and then some more water changes. Clean out filters in old tank water once a week, and keep surface agitation up to ensure plenty of O2 for fishes

I'd do a couple 50% water changes today then do 33% daily water changes afterwards. Testing the water usually helps gauge how much water to change and how frequent. API master test kit is good. It also gives you an idea of when your tank is cycled if it isn't already.

I think Z is telling you to kill the lights so you aren't feeding the bacteria.
