Think might have better chance if both go into new environment.

In the past i ever tried to put 2 together successfully ( gender unknown, had to put as no enough space )

What i did was, i put the aro in existing tank into bag, i changed 50% water and reintroduced both fishes back into the tank at the same time. They did fight abit, take nips at each other's tails. But eventually i was lucky they managed to sort of co-exist.

This kind of thing best to be closely monitored as if they fight, could be deadly.
