I would not keep any in a four foot tank. Six feet you can start considering frontosa.

Look at the cookie cutter tanks for 75G (48" long like yours) with CA and SA fish...there are some big guys there.

With larger CA, you're going to be a bit limited, and you will not enjoy a colony effect like keeping Fronts. I wouldn't recommend large fish, but something like Thorichtys that averages about 6". Several species that are commonly available and can do well in groups with some proper aquascaping.
