I know this topic has been hammered to death and I have been reading and reading but still I am not quite sure what to do. I am not totally sold on fishless cycle or bio spira. I guess I am used to the old fashioned throw some toilet bowl fish and wait.

I am setting up a new 125 gallon tank. I already have a 75 gallon that is established, so my plan was to use about 40 gallons of water from the 75, take some of the rocks and 1 emperor 400 and use that on the 125. Am I on the right track? Would it be safe to add a few cichlids at this point or should I just buy some danios and wait.

Thanks in advance

If the rocks are substrate from the established tank, then that's sound great. All those things will help with seedy the new tank, and speed up the cycle. I would go with the Danios... IMO.
