So I have a 20g long aqueon tank over 1 year old and I just got my cousins 25g IM lagoon tank. So I’ve made an aquascape with some 2 little fishies stax rock, maybe 4 lbs. I was wondering if I should put it in a bucket with some of my established rock and a power head or is it good to go straight in when I’m ready to transfer everything?

I would add some old rock to the tank with your new dry rock so you’ll be able to start your new cycle with established bacteria. If you’re transferring tanks you can also use the old filter if possible since you’ll have an established colony of bacteria. I started my micro with dry rock and kinda wish I didn’t lol.
