I would not recommend placing 2 males in one cage if space is an issue. Males are highly territorial, it doesn't matter if it involves females or not. I have had 3 males live in the same cage, but it was 4'x3'x3'. The chances that they even came in contact were minimal. I was in a pinch needing to get another cage, so this was very temporary and none of my males were injured. But this isn't necessary common. Any time two males are placed together there's a good chance of death in one or both of them (or worse! they're alive with broken limbs or broken jaws...the possibilities are endless!).

If you are uncertain about getting geckos, go with juveniles or unsexable ones. You can keep them together in a 10 gallon tank until sexable. If you get females, good for you. If you get 1 F and 1 M or even 2 M...then get another 10 gallon tank and stack them.
