You know, only now did I notice it is a 28g nanocube. Perosnally, I think a 5g will be fine to house them in during the cleaning. It shouldn't take as long to clean out, but the water parimeters may fluctuate more.

Even on a small tank like yours you don't want to just pile everything into a 5g bucket. I say go to walmart and buy one of those totes they sell. I have 3 that I use for this purpose along with a 90g outdoor pond that I bring in and set next to my tank. If you have a larger container to put your rock in you can also put the fish in that container with a power head and a heater. Over a 6 hour period you water temp is going to be the biggest issue.

As Roka said try not to stir the old sand up too much as this can cause a spike in all kinds of nasty stuff. Also after you do the re-aquascape I suggest a PWC and running some GAC wouldn't hurt either.
