That's fine; the water will be "tap water" so use fresh tap water for the water change in the 5g. I was thining maybe several days ago, in which case I would have suggesting using water from the 20g, but that's not needed here.

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 youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

If you move them all over at the same time AND move the filter with them then you should instantly cycle the new tank (assuming the old one was cycled). You should still do a few extra water changes this coming week to ensure there are no problems though.
