Tank upgrade cycle question

Hi All,

I currently have a 12g tank with a Marineland 200 HOB filter. I plan to upgrade it to a 30g tank with a Sun Sun HW-302 canister.

What's in the 12g currently:
Amazonia substrate
1 amazon sword plant
some water sprite plants
1 Kilifish
2 Gold Ram
1 Yo Yo loach
1 Oto

My plan is to move everything into the new tank with both filter running then remove the Marineland filter after 1 month.

Will it cause a cycle if I do this? Anything else should I be aware of?

I would use the media in your hob and put it in your canister
