    I'm currently transferring the stock from my current 15 gallon tank to a 29 gallon tank, if I move the filter over from my established tank, do I need to cycle the new tank?

    If you're not adding any more fish, then you don't need to cycle the tank if you also transfer the filter.
    Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Your filter will have exactly the same bioload on it as it already carries and will be perfectly fine.

    When you add additional stock, Go slowly in small numbers so that the BB colony can grow to adapt to the greater food supply.

    What filter is it?

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    If that filter has already been used to cycle the first tank then there is no need to cycle the new tank. The "cycle' is the established filter media that is in the existing filter so that would be considered an "instant cycle"

    If you are just transferring your current stock to a larger tank with your existing filter then you should be fine.

    Are you adding any newly acquired fish to your larger tank? What is your current filter?

    Perfect! I thought it would be fine, but I wanted to make sure the loss of the BB in the substrate wouldn't be an issue.

    I'm not going to be adding any new fish yet, just gotta get the new tank set up and running before I add anymore. My new filter is a marineland biowheel 150, it's got room for 2 filter pads so I can move my current one over without taking anything out.

    Thanks for the speedy responses
