If you move over all the substrate, decor, filter media, all 30g of water & puffers, you will have a cycled tank.
You are getting sleepy... you only hear the sound of my voice... you must do water changes... water changes... water changes... water changes...

I still think the media would support your fish, especially if boosted with a bottle of Safestart.
Keep an eye on the parameters for 2 weeks, & if stable, you can start raising the SG.
