I'm glad that you've decided to upgrade. You might want to do a fishless cycle on the tank before you put your girls in it because when one transfers a sorority, it's usually best to do it all at once. If you do a fishless cycle first, there will be enough bacteria to handle all your fish at the same time, otherwise you'll be doing water changes until your arms fall off trying to fight the ammonia and nitrite spikes. Luckily you have other tanks, so you can transfer some of the mulm and filter media you have into the new tank while you're feeding it with ammonia--if this is done right, your tank will be fully cycled in about a week.
Also, please remember that sometimes we all reach a point when we have to ask ourselves: "Am I helping, or am I hoarding?" I know how hard it is to pass up fish that look needy, but you need to draw the line before it gets to the point that getting more fish is a detriment to the fish you already have. Don't overstock this tank too, ok? :) You won't be helping your fish if you put them in overcrowded conditions.
