I am sorry for your distress. You sound like a caring fish parent to be working on building them a new home. There is a lot of info on this site that can help you figure out what you need. A local pond/water garden store may be helpful as well. Build it as big as you can. You can always make changes over time. I do not have any specific suggestions for your fish. Do you have aeration in the water they are currently in? I think you said yes. That is important for them.
