Thanks - useful info! I'm guessing it can't hurt to use the plant, though I'll not expect it to do an instant cycle
I could move a handful of gravel too, but there's not much to spare and the substrates are wildly different (old tank has dyed gravel, new one is natural!)
I've got a very small amount of media I could put in the old (but not exactly mature) tank, but how does one go about doing that?
In an ideal world I'd have set up a 2nd filter in the 1st tank, and then moved it across, but the filter I've got for the new tank isn't suitable to put in the old one. I do have some spare media for the new tank....but how does one go about putting that in the 1st tank without a filter to put it in?
BTW - the new tank is about 8 gallons.
