I have a 29 gal tank with one 3in pink con. A friend has a 2in Jack he needs to give away. Can they share the tank safely?

right now i have a male convict with a male JD in a 29 togther and there doing just fine
Definitely not for life. It would be ok at 2 inches, but at 6" its not going to cohabitate in such a small tank.
They should be fine since they are young. I had a JD with 4 cons in a 20G for a few years. Not optimum, but they managed.
