Default Large fronts mixed with small fronts?

Can I add a 12in male and 8in females with two 7in males and four 5in females? My tank is a 250g 8ft long tank.

you should be fine. just pull your current group out of the tank and rearrange things. put in the new guys and then add the established group 1at a time over the course of a couple hours with your alpha being the last one in. worked for me.
