Can Male Platys Co-exist?

I have purposefully seperated my 4 females from my 2 males. I am tired of needing my hospital tank and already having it full of fry! The two males, who happen to be father and son, are in a 20T with 6 Pristella Tetras and a male dwarf gourami. I notice from time to time the son (who is bigger than dad) chasing dad a bit. Can two males live together or is it a bad dynamic?

I only had a problem keeping two male platies together when one had been kept as the only male for a long time and there was only 1 female in the tank. I would think they'd be fine, but just keep an eye out for problems and add hiding places and escape routes if needed.

Hope this helps!
