Overloaded QT Can't Post

I have the following ; I moved about 37 Koi (30 koi, 7 other) from another pond that was shut down to my 1200gal qt, I know this is a very large load, but they had to go. The qt has been doing great and all the prior tosai where moved before the new arivals came a few days later......
before additions Ammonia was 0, Ph 8.2,temp 55f nitrite 0, and nitrate about 80. The qt has a large filter fall (26" wier) and an aqua uv 1000, with a three crate TT (matala media) . pushed by a 4875gph external moving about 3500gph. 48 hours after the intro of the large koi(18-27inches)......Ammonia is now .50-1.0 and Ph 8.0 w/the others about the same. I guess I would love to know what you would do....ie. salt, more filtration, water changes,etc. I need to keep these alive and in this system for another 60 days. Thanks for you help.........Jamey
