I would say no. Babies/young juveniles are the most cannibalistic and aggressive, and as your axies haven't been living together from when you got them they would be likely to take chunks out of each other, especially if one is larger than the other. If you can, please try to wait until they are adults as they will settle down and become more docile.

Pro tip: the larger the tank, the lower the likelihood that they will fight one another. Also please if possible try to introduce both of them to a new tank together rather than adding one to the others tank, as the current occupant will be more inclined to think it as their 'territory' and be aggressive.

Depends on the size of the tank. I probably wouldn't. Even if they're the same size they can still bite off hands!
