If you're trying to seed the new tank with filter media from the established tank, you'll want to move stuff like filter floss, sponges, cartridges, etc. rather than something like carbon. Do you only have the one filter on the 30g with one cartridge? Is the 30g well decorated? If it's got a lot of decor and/or live plants, or you have multiple filters or multiple cartridges, you're probably safe moving an entire cartridge from the established tank to the new one.
