HI again! many topics now from me but trying to plan my aquarium move to a new bigger one.

I have to move 6 Tiger barbs, 6 black ruby barbs, 6 corydoras sterbai, 4 otos and siamese algae eater. Either I put them in 2 x 4 gallon plastic buckets for some hours with the same water from the tank.

Or I move them to my 20 gallon that current host 8 cherry barbs the night before so like for 18 hours. Will this stress the fish more? or will it stress my cherry barbs?

For me its easier to throw them in the 20 gallon tank the day before so I can empty the old tank and start clean of some stuff etc. Dont have so much time the same day I get the new one so that's why I wonder if its fine or just dumb
