I currently have a 100 gallon aquarium that uses a hang on filter and I'm wanting to upgrade to a sump filter. Looking for advice on the best way to cycle new bio media for the sump filter without hurting the fish.

Take all the media from the HOB filter and put it in the sump for a few weeks while the new media in the sump cycles

Awesome. That was one thing I had in mind but I wasn't sure if that would work. Thank you so much
