the tank must cycle. at least 4 weeks

you could use other tank water(if you have that) and add alot of it to the 55 as well as filter media. 3 weeks

either way its a period of deciding whats best for the tank

you won't gain hardly any beneficial bacteria from moving water to another tank......you need get some established filter media from a friends tank. or else you are looking at either a fish-in or fishless cycle...you can google and read about them.

a cycle could take atleast three weeks to cycle even if you add established filter media, but don't waste your time moving water from another tank

you need to give us some more detail about your tank.....

water parameters would be huge and anything else, filter type, are you cycling right now? or is your tank just sitting there running with a filter on it?
