Putting Red in Tom's tank

Tom, my 4 y.o. betta fish(my first baby) died. I am making a memorial page in a bit. But he had a 5 gal and Red(my other boy betta fish) is in a 2.5 gal. Tom died a week ago and everything in his tank is still in there. I want to put Red in Tom's tank. Should I like, do something to Tom's tank? And how should I move Red? Thank You!

I'm sorry he died. :( Does the tank have a filter? It won't hurt to do a 100% change if you don't. And did he die of old age or a sickness? If sickness, you'll have to do the bleach treatment.

Thanks. Tom's tank has a filter. I haven't turned it off since his death(1 week ago). 100% change? Should I clean the silk plants and rocks? We are 99% sure Tom died of old age. He was 4 years old.

Hm. The tank is cycled, correct? If it is, or even has any beneficial bacteria, just throughly clean the tank with a gravel siphon. Do a 95% change and it should be fine. You can take out the decorations, clean them, and put them back in if you want. Just don't do a 100% change.

Does cycled mean filtered? What is a gravel siphon? Thanks. Sorry if the questions are stupid..

It's OK. I mean, did your filter finish getting enough bacteria to eat ammonia and nitrite? And a gravel siphon is a tool to clean gravel and to suck water out with your direction.

Yep, no ammonia or anything. So that's what their called! I have one and I shall use it and clean the plants and all. One more question: How should I transfer Red into Tom's tank? Tom's tank is in The Office(computer room) and my room is just across.

Maybe from the cup he came in? That would work. Remember to acclimate!
