ghreed beat me to the point on the cycled tank;) Doing a fishless cycle is a whole nother thing and I have never nor will I do one.. So what size is her tank? Gh is right on with the cycling taking weeks and thats with help of something from another cylced tank. Even using 5 gal from your tank and putting it in hers wouldnt do a great job. I wouldnt worry about the fish taking the ride even if it was for an hour. The fish fry size in a 1/2 gal of water give ot take wouldnt put out enough watse to foul the water and raise the amonia levels. Putting them in the new tank might kill them in short order. You want to have the fry grow up and be healthy? just a suggestion keep them in your tank in the breeder for a few weeks and give her tank a chance to do its thing. The spike in amonia and nitrites will not be a good thing for the little ones. Even 2 weeks out with her tank isnt a lomg time without using an aged filter or aged substrate or something. Good looking out GH and I hope she can wait so that she can enjoy them as they grow up.
Stay well Mick

Good to hear but how did you do it so quick? Always interested in leaning how folks cycle their tanks in dif ways.;) just wondering what the numbers are so i know what to look for if I try the way you did it.
Thanks Mick

Theres a formula out that does a 7 day cycle with a treatment everyday for the first 7 days and once a week thereafter. And its safe for the fish so you can put the fish in after 72 hours and with a treatment everyday it keeps anything from spiking until the cycle is complete. I am not sure of the name but I'll get it and let you know.
