Moving up to 20 20 Gallon Tank

    Im going to move my fish to my 20 gallon today and i was wondering, if i put all the decor and gravel and the same filter with the same cartridges will the tank be cycled? I already let the tank run for like 5 days and i was just wondering.

    It sounds like your filter isn't cycled yet so when you move everything to the new tank you'll still be cycling & will have to keep on top of the water stats.
    A lot of people here recommend Tetra safe start to speed up the process, I'll let them advise you on that as I've never used it

    Well i have a cycled tank with a fully cycled filter I also have gravel which im pretty sure has Biological bacteria on it so could i use that

    If the filter is fully cycled & you are only adding the fish you already have, then yes you can just move everything over, keep an eye on your water stats & feed a little less for a few days just in case you have a mini cycle.
