I've got a 55 gal tank with 2 x copadichromis borleyi in it and they swim together all the time. The aquarium I bought them from said if you buy them in large quantities they will school. Pretty cool fish too

Cyprochromis are schooling fish and do best in a large group! Very colorful fish. They like open water and will stay off the bottom so you can still do substrate species to fill out the tank

Cyprichromis

In a 4' tank you are pretty much limited to Cyps, even then they don't do well in such a small aquarium.If you do decide to get Cyps I recommend sourcing them locally because they don't ship well. However if you were to upgrade to 6' 125+ gallon aquarium you could do "schools" of some of the medium sized haps.
