It shouldn't be too long right? They should be fine if you are transferring them over soon. Just keep an eye on the water in the 20, as the Live Rock is your major means of filtration, and you might start seeing some levels start to rise. Are there corals in the twenty? This might make it a little more difficult as they are more sensitive than fish.
