Moving on up!

Alrighty I got a 50g tank for free two weeks ago had everything Rocks, Canister Filter etc etc..Have had it setup for about 1 week now ....I have a 30g tank been up and running strong for 6+ months......I am curious can I drain the 30g water all in to the 50g and use the canister filter on it and throw all the fish in it? Should I be worried about a "cycle" period since the Canister filter has been cycled for awhile now?? The 30g has all tetras in the tank(Rummy, Lemon and Neons)Any help is appriecated.

I've done this several times. Never had a problem. But YMMV.

Don't see a problem either. Would just do a couple of water changes a bit earlier than you usually would for the first couple of weeks.
