Here's the deal. Do a water change. Take a third of the bio media from your bigger tanks filter and put it in the small one. Replace the media in the larger with new. It will re-colonize pretty quickly. Instant cycle in the small tank.
A word of advice though. You really need to do some research and take the time to learn the cycling process. This also aplies to stocking, appropriate tank sizes, and just about any other aea of aquatics. The answers are out there to almost anything if you take the time to do the legwork! Continuing to ask here, snub the advice, then come back with new problems looking for answers, is going to get real old and do you no good.11 tanks, 5.5g up to 125g(2).
