Default Upgrading breeding group from 8x2x2ft footprint To 10x2hx3w or 8x2hx3w (in ft)?

Hello folks
Long time it has been.
I am away from my Egg laying mobas (2m/8f 1year old with me, no fries yet) for close to 8 months now.
They are in. 8x2x2ft.
I will soon be taking them all with me to my new home.
And plan to upgrade their footprint too.

Which size option would affect less and not disturb the colony from breading.
1. 8x2hx3 ft
2. 10x2hx3 ft

Just wanted to keep the height at 2ft to keep cleaning and access to the bed simple.

Not sure I'm clear. One year old and you've had them 8 months? You've had them one year and it's been 8 months since you've had fry?

In any case, imo it will depend on your group as much as anything. They should be happy in either tank, the rest is up to them and this is hard to predict, one group can respond differently than another. This assumes the males are at least three years old, females about 18 months. Any younger and they're probably not ready anyway.
My fishroom, my rules...
