    So, my 5.5 gallon tank is still in the middle of cycling, and i plan to get a 10 gallon tank,so should i wait until the cycle is complete to move the filter and my single adf over, or should i get the tank and make the switch? Will it effect my cycle, especially if I also wanted to put a mystery snail or two in the 10 gallon? Thanks!

    If I were you I would wait for the cycle to finish so the filter's completely ready for another tank, but I think you could move it now without any problems..

    You can move it all over now. I'd wait on the snails until the cycle is complete. What are your current readings?

    I also say to go ahead and move it now, the cycle will be slightly easier on your frog in the larger tank (more water means levels don't rise as quickly). And yes, wait on the snails until your cycle is complete.
