I have 4 4-6" rbp's in a 46g bowfront that are now fighting for territory and showing signs of stress, the tank is overcrowded...I know. I do not have room to upgrade the tank so that is not an option. I am not quite sure how to find new homes for these fish. Can I sell/trade them to the LFS? Any advice is appreciated. Also, what should i put in the tank next?

Take everything out of the tank except the fish. They won't have anything to fight over then. Keep them well feed and try to get some money together to get a 75 gallon tank.

Visited several lfs's today and had no interest due to lack of tank space. I removed the driftwood and plants out of the tank to free up all the space i have. One of my smaller guys is getting some pretty bad fin damage and the only other tank I have is a 7.5g. Do i put the fish in the smaller tank until i can find it a new home and leave three in my 46g, is this possible?

fin nipping is natural for these guys. My RB and caribe always have a few fin nips. One of my 3 blades is becoming the alpha as he gets bigger whooping up on Killer. I just keep up on my water changes and feed them 1 time a day. they have been together for a few months now -check sig.
