hmm... I've thought about doing this a few times. I use sponges in the ten gallon, two of them. So thats a really good idea and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. Where is my mind... Haha thanks, I will just take a sponge out of the ten and put it in my new tank and just replace the sponge out the ten gallon.

Just to point out:

snails are usually much more sensitive to water parameters than fish so a tiny reading of amonia or nitrite is likely to kill them. High nitrates, like you have, is very risky as well.

Personally I would wait untilt he cycle is finished. Your fish may well survive but they are not likely to live quite as long lives as they wuld otherwise have done.

Lol alright thanks. Do not worry! I'm not putting my fish in until it is fully cycled. I just wanted to know if a water change would aid in the nitrites go down. Thanks for the replys.
