Lets just say, better safe then sorry. Seriously. Those females can kick some serious butt! :D Last spawning attempt, my female beat my male up so bad. Seriously. Those females can be brats. :) But I love 'em.

So, it is very very rare that two females can live together LONG TERM safely. I'd just divide the tank if I were you.

I have two females together in a divided tank and one jumped onto the side with my other one and my big one almost killed her. This happened about a month ago and their fins are FINALLY coming back in. I have no doubt in my mind that my bigger one would've killed my little one if I hadn't seen them for another day.
