Keep one thing in mind.

Get the 75g right now!

As soon as your tank relaxes and begins it's little ecosystem you will shock it by moving everything to another tank. It will cycle all over again and could take the new tank with it. If you do get the new tank at a later time set it up with new sand and new rock. Let it cycle and then move the livestock over. Sell the old sand and rock or add it to the new tank a few weeks after the new tank stops cycling.
