I would advise against it because they will be competing for the same food source. Mandarins are not known to be friendly towards each other, even as opposite genders.

What size tank are you considering for these two fish?

In 75 tank, just do one. Its doubtful you would have enough food for 2.

That said, from what Ive seen in my tank with a pair of reds and a pair of spotted ones. The females are the angry ones. Males dont seem to care about each other, but females hate everyone.
