I currently have a 30 gallon tank that is populated with varied tropical fish. This tank is running great and the occupents are very happy. I have purchased new 55 gallon tank that will be my second tank. I would like to move the fish from my 30 to my 55. What is the best way to accomplish this ??? I have been told I must transfer 5 gallons of water at a time once a week from tank to tank.

you can transfer the filter that you have from tye 30 to the 55 ,benificial bacteria is mostly seeded in your filter media and some in the gravel and ornaments (not the water itself)..just put 30 -50 % of the water to the 55 the rest fresh chlorinated water ..and test your water daily for the next few days it should be ok :)
