I'm aware that males shouldn't be kept together, and that males and females shouldn't be together unless you're planning to breed, but can two females be kept together successfully? I've seen a lot of mixed opinions and haven't been able to get a clear answer yet.

The enclosure they'd be kept in is 6x2x2ft with plenty of hides and two separate basking spots.

I'm no expert in any way so this is just me replying with my very limited understanding of beardies.
They are not small lizards, and while a 6 foot viv sounds big, when you then factor in height and width as just 2 feet, then, for two quite big, very active lizards, it's not really much space at all.
Reptiles do not need to be kept with their own kind. They are solitary creatures.
Personally, I would be of the view that one beardie in that viv will he very happy. Put two in, there is then the complications of territories, aggression, etc.

My understanding is that Bearded Dragons should not be kept together at all, regardless of how big the viv is
