I was thinking about this when I first saw you posting about the two species together. In general, don't keep any snakes together when one includes snakes in its diet, even if they're the same species (even baby gopher snakes will eat other snakes, for example). Even if it would be rare for a ringneck to eat a brown snake of the same size, you just don't want to risk it. For example say that the ringneck smells a little worm slime on the brown snake, starts chewing, and then tries but fails to ingest the brown snake - the brown snake still gets killed in the end.
