Are they all adults? As long as there isnít a massive size difference they should be fine. Aggression is usually only a factor during feeding so try spreading food out or hand feed to avoid those crocodile rolls on limbs.

I have several of varying - but similar - sizes that didn't grow up together. As long as they can't eat each other and are watched for aggression, I don't see an issue.
