Welcome to TFK. I don't know a lot about different fish. I always use the "Tropical Fish Profiles" tab at the top of the screen for great fish info. I'm sure that your questions will be answered once others see your post.
Of course I can say that the first thing you want to do is get your tank set up and start the cycling process. As you know, this can take a while, but you can use some of the beneficial bacteria you already have in your first tank to help cycle your new one. If your new tank has already cycled, then you could add your fish you already have after acclimatizing them to it like you did when you first brought them home. Or, you could stock the new tank with the new fish, leaving your older ones in the first tank until you know that the new ones are not carrying any diseases and add the older ones later. Just remember that anytime you are moving fish, acclimatizing them is important to help minimizing stress.
