Either will work. You have lots of bb in your substrate. If you do it all at once youll be fine just check your parameters often for a week or so. It could mini cycle but ive never had it happen. Maybe add some prime to help.

Cool. Thanks guys. My firemouth is going to love this. He hates my hand being in the tank, he will swim around it constantly flaring his gills like he is going to attack it lol.

When I did this I did half the tank at a time with a couple of weeks in between.
