Default A Lot Of Trub

I just transfered my pumpkin ale from primary to secondary and there was a lot of trub at the bottom ~ 1 gal. Now that it is in my secondary (5 gal BB) there is a lot of head room. Is there something i should do about the head room to prevent oxidation?

I don't want to start a debate/argument about the trub, i'm just curious about the head space of the secondary.

There will still be a layer of Co2 covering your beer as it is heavier than O2. Your beer won't get oxidized.
