I believe most, if not all of the Amblypygis are fine communally.

EDIT: Oops, just noticed that what you have is a vinegaroon, I have no experience with those, so disregard my advice

Are they adults? I've kept males together and they would do OK, but females would try to kill each other, just my experience, I never kept trying it.

I would suggest against keeping them together. Even a receptive female can end up killing a male.

I don't think they can be kept together. I don't know for sure, but I'm thinking in the end you'd end up with one fat happy vinegaroon instead of two. My specimen isn't super aggressive, even to prey, but I don't think it's worth the risk.

I'd keep them separate. Not enough information is really known, but its better safe then sorry.

Pretty sure they'll kill each other, unless they are a sexed pair, though even then after a while the female would probably eat the male. It's best to keep them separately, they are not at all like their communal relatives the Amblypygids, (whipspiders).
