My concern about a bucket or other small holding container would be temperature loss (what's the point of floating [read: raise temperature in bag] only to put them in a container of great heat loss and slow drip them?
You can put a small heater in the container.
Slow drip is a good habit to get into. Expecally when it comes to more sensative inverts like starfish.

The heater in the acclimation container makes sense... but I've never seen it recommended before now. I'll have to think about that. Not sure that I currently own a heater small enough for the task.
