My impression was that you should leave the filter media in until the tank has cycled but I have no idea what I'm talking about .

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

yea...that sounds right. leave it in until your tank is cycled. it should cycle quickly with the media from the established tank.

yes...your doing the same thing that i did with my 55 gallon when i started it up...I took the filter from my 10 gallon into my 55 gallon and it cycled the tank within 2 days! I also had my other filter 4 the tank hooked up also. And I had gravel from my 10 also...so my cycle was a piece of cake. You should be doing good with that kept on!
