Moving fish to bigger tank???


I'm going to move 6 neon tetras and 1 betta from a 10g to a 29g. The 29g use to have 2 cichlids but I found a new home for them. What do I need to know?

If the new tank is cycled and has pretty much the same water conditions as your old one, there isn't much of an issue.

If its cycled, all I would do is a short drip acclimatise to account for any small variances and move them over.

The tank has the same water temps etc. Maybe I should change out some of the water first?
