I think that might be asking for trouble. Perhaps the captive bred P. aldabraensis are a little more sociable than wild-caught ones, but I wouldn't risk it.

You might get away with it, but I doubt it. 180 sounds like a lot, but that's a tiny space in the wild. Some of the other people on this forum with more experience with captive-bred P. aldabraensis might give you different advice. I haven't ever kept this species, though I have observed and collected it in the wild (in the Persian Gulf).
