There are no problems with keeping 2 females with 1 male if the tank is big enough.

There may be some chasing of the new BN when you fisrt introduce her but so long as there are plenty of hiding places it should soon settle down.

yeah, no issues if the tank is big enough.

When they do start be sure to give the male a break every now and again...two females can work him to death...typical :tongue:
