Okay, first, your U. sikorae is a fresh import, or has not been cared for properly. The first thing on your mind should be getting it properly hydrated, eating well, and overall healthy appearance. This is not meant to be rude, but Uroplatus are a touchy species, and if the first week or two they arrive they are not cared for properly, they will die. The best thing for you to do is leave your U. sikorae alone, by itself and not touch it, pester it, or bother it in any other way except for feeding, and spraying it A LOT ( many people even choose to shower them in tepid water for 1/2 an hour a day in an actual shower). Since your mossy is WC, not to mention most likely a fresh import, it is probably loaded with all sorts of stuff that R. ciliatus has never even thought about coming in contact with after being bred in captivity for the past 12 years.
Although temperature, and humidity requirements are very similar for the two species, there is just no need to house them together. If you have any specific questions about caring for the mossy, let us know, but the general consensus here will be to NOT house them together.
