Hi all, I currently have 3 dojo loaches in a 20gal tank that is entirely too small, I bought and set up a 50gal and treated it with prime and safe start.
I really want to move them to their bigger tank and get them two more friends asap, but don't want to move them too quickly, how long should I wait?

Can you move the filter with them & run both filters for a month or so? I don’t think TSS+ will be successful in this case because it is designed for a lightly stocked tank (as in 1-2 inch fish per 10 gallons). Is the tank they are in successfully cycled?

The safe start that I used is Fluval cycle, sorry I should have specified. It is to be used over a period of three days but says it allows addition of fish immediately
