Moving my angelfish pair.

I was thinking of moving my angelfish pair into my 44g tank. They have only bred once and that was a few days ago. How should I go about doing this? I was thinking of putting both of them in a half full 5g bucket and drip acclimating them (though I'm sure the water isn't really any different....) and then putting them into a big bag and floating them to get the temperature the same (in case it's a bit different). Anyways I'm just asking is it going to ruin their pair? I don't think it does, but will it matter since they have only had babies one time?

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

drip acclimating is the best way to do it in my book its less stress on the fish when i transfer my big fish i just through them in there new tank with half there old water but thats because there hardy and they bite lol.
