When my sump/fuge sprung a leak I quickly built another and just swapped all the contents overs and never really seen any spikes or issues from it but I would say go with the 20.. bigger is always better in filtration

Then the sooner you set up the better but just switching over the fuge won't "instant cycle" your tank but it will be a good start.. just remember the more you seed the less time it'll take

I feel you there I just went through a break up and after a lot of fighting got to keep the place so I didn't have to move my three tanks lol but your not really left with an option so move things soon and quick then hope for the best. You may be able to get you local shop to house your fish for a little while for a fee
