Without doubt they will have their disagreements until they determine which is the more dominant of the two. If one is a lot smaller then the other it usually doesn't cause too much drama from what I have found. If they are evenly matched then you might need to keep a close eye on them for damage. They can be quite frisky with their territorial battles. It would probably also help if you perhaps had 3 or 4 caves until they both settle on their preferred spot. Then you could take the others out. I would place caves as spread out as possible so they don't need to venture into the others territory unnecessarily.

thats real good advice also dont put the caves faceing each other.

First off rinoh: how big is the tank in question? A 3ftr = possible drama's, a 4ftr would be better suited for a couple
of pairs and like skippy suggested excess caves with 2 lots of caves at either ends of the tank, this way territories
will be split at either sides of the tank.
cheers J

Just about every species of fish will have male vs male territorial spats, some having worse outcomes than others.
