Mixing Big and Little Bleeding Heart Tetras?

It has been my plan for a long time to extend my group of Bleeding heart tetras to 8 or 10 When I first bought my bleeding heart tetras from my LFS a long time ago, they were about 2 inches long. They are now getting 2.5 inches and reaching full size. I went to extend the shoal size, and my LFS finally got some Bleeding hearts in! I was pleased until I saw the size of them They are about an inch long. Based on how bleeding hearts can behave, is this a really bad idea to add some more?

I need to get them soon, if I am, because they are sold very quickly

If you are only adding 2 to reach a total of 8, I would pass. Adding only 2 smaller fish, they would be quickly harassed.

Thanks - if I was to go and add 4, would that make a difference, or still be a no?

4 would be better than 2, it would spread the aggression around.
