In a 50 gallon I wouldn't worry about it. I have three in a 100gl and they all have staked out their individual territories and there is no problem at all. During feeding time they'll leave their *spaces*, feed and then retreat back. Once in a while during feeding they will squabble but then go right back to their respective territories.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
