I agree. When you move everything from the 15 gallon, you disturb the benificial bacteria colony, disturb some detritus, and there is a chance you could lose some bacteria when you transfer. Therefore, the tank would mini-cycle. Keep in mind, you need to stock your 15 gallon so you can establish the benificial bacteria. Only decaying plants will produce waste for benificial bacteria to thrive on. Live plants may, but not much (I think).
Since you have a 15 gallon, I would keep that aside as a QT/Hospital tank when you get your 90 gallon setup.
