Yea but like it’s a rlly small amount of rock, only about like 2 and a half pounds, and I’m bringing in another 40 pounds. I don’t think it will be enough
bacteria reproduce rapidly, you may not be ready for fish right away but it wont take long to get there

How old is the sand? May not want to transfer it without rinsing. Doesn't provide much bacteria wise anyway
