Botia Eos

Has anyone had the situation of keeping one Eos in a mixed loach tank and then adding another?

I have one and the opportunity has come up to get a second one but the guy I have is the stroppiest fish in the tank. He's quite peaceful as long as the other fish stick by the rules and stay away from his (her?) cave (he took it off 2 bigger yoyos within 15 seconds of hitting the tank) but I dont know how he will behave with another Eos. Do they buddy up and share or are they likely to start brawling over territory? Iwould really like another one but not if the tank turns into a battleground.
