Are you planning on them breeding? If so they will fill out any tank pretty quickly unless you have a plan for the babies. The tetras/parents might eat some but that is a lot of livebearers.

150-208 lieters or approx 40-55 us gallons should give them plenty of room to breed. Make sure you have good filtration and plenty of plants.
