Please rethink about re-homing them. It really is the for the best. They might be small now, but they grow up to be tank busters...provided they grow up. You might plan to have that 120, but life has a tendency to delay even the best plans. Even assuming you do get the big tank, how do you know you got it in time to prevent stunting since you're going to use the size of your fish as the basis? When these guys get bigger, they get territorial with each other. It's very possible you eventually end up with one dead loser and a stunted winner (not sure if that actually counts as a win). Try to re-home them and when you get that big tank buy another. They somewhat sadly (for reasons like your situation) aren't that hard to find.
