I have two mated pairs in a 125g tank, but don't have the spare tanks around to move them into their own 40B's to try and raise fry. They never make it to the fry stage, all the eggs get eaten by day 2 I suspect mostly at night by the corys.
I'd actually be interested to see what happens if both pairs spawned at the same time. Everyone else would get crowded into the center and not allowed to move ;)
If you want to keep this going I would really consider doing live brine shrimp versus frozen. They take two days to hatch, so two hatcheries is enough to have a daily supply. You only want to feed baby brine shimp that still have their egg sack, otherwise they have next to zero nutrition value.
But of course, you also need an outlet for the fish. Some fish stores will take them, but don't expect to make any money (you'll be lucky to get 50 cents a fish, maybe more as store credit). If you live in a large area, and don't mind random people coming to your house, you can attempt to sell direct to owners.
