If you want to keep the fish together, go straight for the 150gal tank as LHG suggested No splitting the fish up then. Usually, I'd suggest transferring most of the water across with the fish, but in this case, I'd just acclimitise them as though they were new stock
Fill the new tank up (obviously) with fresh dechloronated water, leave it to stand for a few hours (might be worth getting an understrength heater actually - it'll be quicker ) then bag the fish and transfer them across. Float the fish in the bag for 15 minutes to equalise temperature, then open the bag and pour a cupful of tankwater into the bag every 15 minutes. After a further half hour, release them in the new tank. Repeat with any other fish.
