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 .

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!
