20 gallon tank would be minimum in my view. This would allow you to keep a group of six to eight and fishes would be much happier.
In smaller number's,,the fish often pick on the weak fish, and with just two specimens,, one would maybe pester the other to death, and larger aquarium would give the victim room to escape.
Could be the two fish would not exhibit any trouble, but it would not in my view be the norm.
Larger tank would allow for proper number of fish = less stress.
