American Flag fish - Am I about to make a mistake?

I have a 40 gallon community tank with 6 American Flags, a few cherry barbs and 7 adolescent Bolivian rams, as well as some corydoras and peacock gudgeons. Everyone gets along fine right now. One male Flag with 5 females. He's happy, they're happy. Here is my dilemma:

I also have a grow out tank (15 gallon heavily planted) with 6 American Flags in it which are just now coming into adolescence. In here I have 3 males and 3 females. They're just now showing their courtship behaviors and since they're in such a small space there are territorial issues developing.

What can I expect if I move these 6 Flags into the 40g with the others? Is this going to be "a bad idea"?

Thanks for your input!
