First time fry with cacatoudes, but moving in 2 weeks. Can I save them?

Newbie here, this is my first cacatoudes pair. I have them in a heavily planted 26 gallon bow front.

I've been gone for 2 days and I just came back and noticed all the fry, over 20, with the female.

I'm moving in 2 weeks and we'll have to break down the tank and want to know if there's anything I can do to save them.
I have an established fishless 5 gallon I can put them in that's heavily planted. Or I can set up a 10 gallon from scratch to hold them while I break down the 26G tank and rebuild it after move.

Advice?
Thank You

45 min drive at most. I have portable air and 5 gallon buckets. Just want to save as many fry as possible.
Awesome. Get some water at the new place dechlorinated and warm in those 5 gallon buckets. Leave a gallon/gallon and a half of water in the tank for the fry and hit the road. Catching little fry stinks
