I'd give it a few weeks.

When you go to set up a new tank, I'd also do a big vacuum on your established tank, pour off most of the water, and keep the leftover mulm to lay underneath the new substrate in your new tank.

That should pretty much cycle the new tank from the get-go, though of course I'd keep a close eye on the parameters for the first few weeks while everything stabilizes.
