Question New tank

I've got a couple of baby goldfish (black moor and shubunkin) and i know they are out growing their filtered 5 gal bowl. I was wondering what:
1. Size of tank to get (gallons)
2. Price of tank
3.How distressing will the transfer from one tank to the other will be and how to reduce stress.
A link to a tank would be nice (UK website)
I'm not a huge fish fanatic so most probably won't be buying any more but just want to keep them both happy in a stimulating environment.
I am planning on buying a tank very soon so don't worry about the bowl, it's only temporary.
And i know about their production of ammonia and the bowl has been cycled already
Cheers!

I would imagine a 10 UK gallon tank would be fine.

Pets At Home have a 10G Marina tank with a filter and lighting for 65. This is what I have.

Also I use Complete Aquatics. They have some very nice tanks, maybe not the size you are looking for though. Aquarium Tanks & Cabinets, Buy Tank Kits, Juwel & River Reef Online - Complete Aquatics

Goldfish need 20 gallons for the first one and an additional 10 for each after that. A 10 gallon will last a little while but it is a sad sad place for a few goldfish to live in.
