I hope to be setting this up in about two weeks. I'm going to need put livestock from my 20 in this to make room for some kribensis fry I need to separate from their parents soon. I am running the filter on my 20 gallon right now to seed it with bacteria for a couple of weeks. I was thinking if I also put about ten gallons from the twenty in the 38 when I set this up I won't need to cycle? Any thoughts on this plan?

I've been making some drawings for this with the idea of using large rocks at intense angles.

But since I got so much eco complete I think I might want to try and make something with high sloped sides and a little valley in the middle with lots of small rocks.

Some of the plants I allready have in other tanks like the African Onion Plant and Rotala indica and hygrophila aungostifolia, but I'll be looking around for more dwarf hairgrass, dwarf baby tears giant hairgrass, rotala macranda, staurogyne repens, and ludwigia inclinata vesticilata cuba. Let me know if you have some extra.
