A 4-foot is obviously only temporary for the initial stages of the fish's growth. And with at least 3 more fish, if you intend to keep them in the larger aquarium when they need it, which will be not that far off.
my friend owns the largest fish shop in the county and will be able to get rid of them very easy when they near say 10-12"
i knew they are supposed to be in groups of 4-5+ im just thinking even 5 may be too much as they grow may just get another one or two 4 is probs the best tho
whats your thoughts on it knowing im not keeping them when they get past abouts 28 CM
