i cant see a problem as long as you provide loadsa caves and places to hide, make sure you point all your caves in opposite direction's though
as the males are sneaky and will spy on one another, and this will lead to fighting,,
so as long as you provide plenty of cave's, and your tank size is sufficient then it should be fine...
ive kept five males at once with only 2 cave's and they fought like mad other anything....
But that amount of large Bn's will produce alot of crap...

how big is the tank they are going to be in?

4 adult males could cause a lot of fighting instead of breeding mate so you will have to keep a close eye on them IMO

yeh you are all right i added a few more male's to my tank the otherday and it caused chaos....
The smaller BN's thought they could have ago at my large L182 male haha what a daft decision that was....

I would put lots of female's in there but just a few males....
