What happens if you plant your seedlings too close?

Hello to all,

I'm a first time gardener and I am trying container growing. I have a 35 gallon holder and I think I might have planted my tomatoes too close. They are only about 6-7 inches away from each other. Is it okay to pull up some of them and move them or would this damage the roots too badly? Or could I just leave them and bear with smaller fruit?

pull some out so that they are spaced properly, they will be better off than crowded. Tomatoes aren't a fragile plant, if they break, plant that part again, deep.
