Now that it's several days later, a hydrometer reading should be able to confirm that your gravity has started to drop.
I don't ferment in buckets. At this point, I'm using a 6.5-gallon Better Bottle for primary, with the orange top. I start with a blowoff tube, then move to an airlock a day or two after the krausen has fallen back down.
