One will bully the other, the weaker will die from injuries and possibly the bully could die too. 4 is the absolute minimum.

Having more than one female will spread aggression, you need a min. of a 10 gallon tank.... with a 10 gallon you can SAFELY put in 5-6.... no less no more to be safe and the tank would need to be heavily decorated to help break lines of sight....
