Very. Keeping two males together, unless it is literally a pond (even then it could be bad) is always a bad idea. 99.9% of the time one will end up dead and the other seriously injured... Or dead. Even if they appear peaceful it could change at any second.

If you mean placing them in the tank with no divider then yes. It will result in both fish fighting until one of them is dead.

Ditto. You'll wind up with at leas 1 dead fish. A lot of the time they fight so hard that you get 1 dead and then the "winner" dies a day or two later from injuries and stress.
