How many 3" peacocks in 20 long?

I set up a 20 long to breed my peacocks in and avoid hybridization by having them all in one big tank. I have 1 male and 4 female all of same species in this tank and so far so good. The tank has an abundance o hiding places and is way over filtered. Do you guys think this set up will be okay go a few months and how many more do you think could be added. I also do a 50 % water change a week

Thanks for the reply. I am curious as to what expected problems I might run into. If there are plenty of low to the ground caves to hide in leaving lots of swimming room with great water quality via over filtration and water changes I feel like I might be able to get away with around 6 or so. I have the ability to put them in other tanks if problems do occur but I guess I am basically just wondering what these problems might be.

Yes it will suffice for time being. You may notice a slow growth rate for the females
