2 types of Jawfish?

I'd just like some opinions on the idea that I currently have and if it could work or I should abandon it all together.
I currently have a Yellow Head Jawfish that hides in the back right corner of my tank and has made his home there.
I'm also very drawn to the Blue-Spotted Jawfish and want to add on to the tank but I've been warned of the dangers of having 2 Jawfish together. Currently under the most left live rock the is space under the rock that a past fish had dug up and I feel I can get a Blue-Dotted Jawfish to take that spot if I got one.
Here's the dilemma, is that it is a 20 gallon Nano Nuvo tank. With them being on the opposite sides of the tank I feel it could work. What do you guys think?
Currently all that is in the tank besides my corals is my clean up crew and the Pearly and a Bi-Color Blenny. Click image for larger version

I dont think in a tank this size it would work very well. They are bound to have scuffles in a small tank. Maybe if the tank was larger it could work, but i dont see it going very well in a 20 gal. If you do end up trying it good luck.

if your tank was like a 90g it would be possible as once they establish territory they stay close by , but in a 20g It would be a battle to the end the stronger would prevail,
