Default Secondary Headspace

Hello all, noob here. I just racked a cream ale into a 6 gal carboy secondary to make room in my fermentor. It's a 5 gallon batch so my question is:

Is that too much headroom?

It's fine, the beer is still producing co2 to fill that space and you won't be keeping it there long.
