put all new water in the new tank?
When we the reef guys by live rock its not good to just put it in your tank. They will cycle the rock in trash cans. What this means is that all bad stuff and even some good will die off the rock. This inturns protects your tank from any bad stuff that the live rock might have had on it. You can use the tank water but what I would do is do water changes on the trash cans that way it keeps the ammonia and such down.
