Hi,
I'm changing my 50 gallon tank into african cichlid set-up & want to know if I empty water from the 50 gallon tank into an empty tank & add some gravel & use a filter system ive not used for a few months, would it be ok to add my fish into it for a few days while I get the 50 gallon tank sorted.

thanks.

Id it possible to tranfur some used filter media? That will take all the guesswork out of it.

You'd basically be moving them into an uncycled tank. Never a good idea.

If you could move s much as you can from the old tank it would be much safer, esp. the filter media, so
