Tank set up help

Recommended Posts

Hi! I’m getting a tank from a local hobbyist tomorrow along with the plants, shrimp and filters. I obviously won’t have time to let it cycle when I bring it home and set it up. I’ll be changing gravel and cleaning it before putting plants and shrimp back in. 

I don’t have any aquarium that is both big enough and safe to put the shrimp in until the tank cycles. 
My question is can I bring the tank in, change gravel. Pull water from an established aquarium to put in it before shrimp go in? I have a turtle tank that is well established and had about a 25% water change a couple days ago. I was thinking to pull the water from this tank to move to new shrimp tank.
