55 gallon tank to 125 gallon?

I'm planning on upgrading my 55 gallon to a 125 gallon in September.... I have 2 bala sharks 1 gold gourami, 1 blue gourami, 1 opaline gourami, 3 glofish tetras, 3 black skirt tetras, 1 crowntail male betta , 1 female crowntail betta and 2 female bettas I'm going to keep the 55 gallon for after betta fry hatch since I will be trying to breed the 2 crowntails, should I go for a 125 or larger? I also want to add more fish when I get the larger tank... Should I also get a 30 gallon for the fry and keep the 55 gallon for a saltwater tank?

Lol go for it. Not really my taste in fish except the balas and the blue gourami but it would work. I would not add more than 5 more fish, but hey, it can always be a grow out
