Can two lyre tail males guppies live together peacefully?

They are babies if that matters.

Depends on tank size and how many females are in the tank with them.
Generally male guppies don't play well together.

I would imagine so but you'll probably get answers from people more familiar with Guppies in the "Other Fish" section.

My males guppies do fine together.
You can always throw a few females in to distract them if you don't mind some fry(two or three girls for every boy).

I had five boys living peacefully in a 20gallon for about 3 months before a random illness killed off my entire tank in the course of 3 days. :(

I had two together and they did swell! They would just swim together and wiggle in a circle together. It almost looked like they were dancing.

They *could live together peacefully but if I were you I'd buy 2-3 more. Guppies are social creatures and enjoy being in groups

+1 to Mo.
adding a couple more would probably be a good idea.

If you're on the lookout I have some guppy fry I can send you. xD

I think I am going to leave the guppies alone for now but it's good to know the males can live together in case I decide to later. I was only wanting male because I don't want fry and I could not bear to feed them to my bettas.

I'm going to keep all male Endlers for the same reason: Guppies as food doesn't appeal. So, all males. I already have male Dwarf Panda Guppies and love them. They are so darned cute. Looking for more.
