Default Big fronts with small fronts?

Can you put 2" fronts in with a 12", 10", and 8"? I'm talking of Kapampas. I have a chance to pick some up but there are four large and three smaller ones in the 2" range. I only have 125 gallon tank for them. Can this be done or are they going to eat/beat them?? I'd like to hear others experiences.

he doesnt even seem to have time to notice them lol
think hes more worried about his harem...
the juvies stay pretty far away from him but.... EVERYONE in the tank does lol
he patrols alot and everyone scatters
