I wouldn't use the old water, but moving the gravel and filter and junk should be just fine. I've never had a problem even with just using a piece of the old filter

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]

I've cycled aquariums before but I've never done a fish-less cycle. I hope the addition of the gravel/plants/filter media will make the process much faster. Thanks for the link!
