    Hey I bought a 20g high from petco for the Dpg sale ( I really want to go bigger but I just don't have the space). My question is what is the proper way to move my setup to a new tank? Do I have to start a new cylce in the 20g?

    not necessarily. You can simply take out the filter media form the 10g and put in in the 20g and instant cycle and you can simply remove everything from the 10g and add it to the 20g. Remember to have water in it so the filter media won't dry up

    All you really have to do is transfer everything. It may go through a cycle bump but as long as you have prime and do water changes it should be ok. You could also get a bottle of stability which would help
