Can i add 3-4 inch p's in to a 100 gallon tank with another 6 ps around 5inches or would they scoff em?

There is alot of space in the tank and lots and lots of swords

You could, but based on the 20 gallon per fish rule you should be housing 5 reds in that 100g tank. Of course, I think that you are fine with 6 reds in that 100. However, you will be overstocked if you try and fit 3 more reds in there. Perhaps not now, but when they start reaching 7"-8"-9" it would be tight.

But, to answer your question, yes, you could add 4" reds with 5" reds. Normally, at that size they tend to eat one another more at that size.

guarentee'd those smaller p's would do fine...i got a 5" long one, in with a 7" and my biggest is like triple the thickness, and from belly to top of back is like 2" diff so i can notice a considerable amount...they get along fine

yeah, the older they get, there tends to be less canabilism. Not saying a few won't get snached up, but if you provide hiding places and tank space, you should be fine.
