Small frontosa colony in 200 gallon tank ?

Will this work and how many can I fit ? Is there a chance for a large enough colony to breed? The tank looks tiny in the picture but I promise is huge

I think if they're going alone you could put 5 or 6 in there. I havent kept fronts. Before but I have heard they need to be in groups so atleast a 125g is needed. I think 5-6.

Frontosa do not get 4 foot. Im pretty sure they get about 11-12" but definitely not 4 feet. I'm not even sure that there's a cichlid that reaches that size....
