hi
i would say move everything over to the bigger tank,
gravel.decorations,water,filter, plants
run both filters if you can for a couple of weeks,
that will give the new filter chance to grow its own
bacteria colony.
if you are unable to run both could you possibly put
the media from the old filter into the new one.
then i would check the water conditions to watch for
a mini cycle,
hth :)

Canisters do not take space inside the tank whereas filters such as sponges do.
