A picture would help. Also, it's not the height that is important for bonsai, it is the girth of the trunk.

Acacia Arabica

The correct name is Vachellia nilotica. This is the tree that produces gum arabic. I have grown Vachellia farnesiana, the sweet acacia. Google on Vachellia bonsai and you will probably get plenty of information.
Meanwhile, keep them growing to thicken the trunks. Gradually prune back the taproots and encourage shallow root systems.
