I can honestly say 1 week is not enough. I lost a whole colony while running for a week the same way. Make sure u clean ur existing sponge filter in your new tank aswell as (ur new filter) running 2 weeks in existing tank.

Just keep in mind whatever you have in the existing tank will get transferred to the new system. So for example if you have snails in the system they are likely to take up residency in the new system by being transferred with the sponges. Have a good look at your tanks that the new sponges are going into.
