Hi,

In a tank of that size, there should be plenty of room to share. Most plecs will act in a territorial manner towards others to some extent if their favourite spot is invaded, or they're competing over food, but it usually just involves a short chase with no harm done. If the tank has a few caves and hidey-holes of rock, wood or artificial décor it should provide enough retreats so that they can both claim a preferred spot.
