I certianly would use the larger tote bin more space = less stress , throw some pvc pipe in there for them to hide as well ... I would set up to do some small 15%-25% water changes to compensate for the high ammonia ( there is a cycle going on now ) but you should beable to guard it with a few water changes , I have even heard to use birospeara (refridgerated ) not sure if it really works it is expensive but some folks swear by it , I have only used it once and really have no opinion on it other than it did no harm ,water changes are IME/IMO just as good , also run some carbon changing it out every few days or so

PWC's are your friend here. Prepare enough to do 2 - 20% changes a day for a week. You probably won't need to, but it helps keep the water parameters in check until a biofilter gets established.

Remeber to lower the SG no more than a couple of points per day. It must remain at at the 1.009 for 4 weeks (minimum). Returning the SG at the end must also be done slowly.
