And adding a biological supplement when you set up the tank with the fish in it won't do any harm, Seachem's "Stability" is my favourite, "Cycle' also works, plus the conditioner of course.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]
Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
Yea, i don't think leaving water/substrate in a 55 gal tank would be too good of an Idea. Seems I should not have any problems moving.
