Default When and How to Prepare for Newts to Morph Into Adults?

My first batch(about 7) of cynops pyrrhogaster juvies morphed around late May/early July. They’ve been raised terrestrially. A couple are pretty decent sized. My question is: when and how do I prepare my tank for them to return to the water? Two of them are like 5 times bigger than the rest and look like it might be a very long time before the other 5 are ready. Right now they live in a setup with soil, Moss, rocks, leaf litter and bark. I mist it every other day. Never got this far with offspring before so I’m clueless. Thanks.
