Reboot time- start fresh or carry over bacteria?

I have a 37 gallon tank that has been running for several years with a dwindling group of turq. severum. I handed off the last fish today, and am hoping to find a group of young festivum for the next epoch.
So I have a choice..... stick the biowheels and filter medium in a bucket with the old water for a few hours while I tear down and clean and set up the tank..... or take everything out of service, and start over with a "dead" tank that then has to cycle for a month?
If this were your only tank, what would you do? Thx!

It depends when would you put fishes in. If you have them already go with first option, if don't you can do the second one (but still first would work too).
