I say nay. 60g is too much a risk IMO, especially when they get bigger.

Depending on your aquascaping it can be done. There would need to be a lot of rock to break up the line of sight. After a while they should get used to each others presence.

I think it's possible. Add them in at the same time so one can not establish territory over the other.

i have one center island that goes up about 6" below the water line. fish can swim all around it. so i think i should be ok.

That rock scape will probably not work since it is so easy for the fish to get around to the other side. You will need more caves/pillars so they can each have their own territory.

so do you think 2 islands would be better?

if u have an established tank with plenty of rocks, and u add them at the same time, its doable. i added my cb after having a flame in my 72 for over 2years and it worked. at the beginning there was chasing, but after 3 weeks they now get along.
