How big is your P right now? What I would do is take them all out and rearrange the tank then put them back in. I need more information from you though to give better advice.....specifically the size of your existing P and tank.

If you have them all at the same size aprox and redecor your tank and then reintroduce all of the fish and while at the same time provide adequat space for them and provide good maintenance then you should be all set
if you do notice a little bit of a problem try a divider temperarly ...usually they wont just kill anoother one without some kind of sign like nips ...etc first

Well so far i only have 1 in a 10 gallon tank, but i am planning of buuying a bigger aquarium and 2 more P's. aquarium size will be at least 100 liters.
BTW how is a 60 liter for just 1 P? how much better is that for 1 P?

If you follow xenons advice you should be fine. there are never any guarantees but that is what I have done and I have yet to loose any. I am not really familiar with liters to gallons but if you get a 55 gallon tank you could add 2 - 3 more without problem. As to your last question, I am sure all p's would like a bigger tank. but once again I dont know what size a 60 liter is.

first of all what kind of p is it as their is no mention as to the type ie serraslmus or pygocentrus complex ,if pygo you can add other p's with it ie reds/caribe/piraya are all pygos ,serras on the other hand are mainly solitary fish with few exceptions in a tank .if it is a red as in your avatar then you should have no problem
100 ltr tank is @ 40 us gal which may be a push for 3 possibly get a slightly bigger tank
