You put an "s" on EBAs. If that is the case and you wind up with a mated pair, then all bets are off. A single one should be ok though.

In a smaller tank I wouldn't suggest adding them together, but you have a good sized tank for it. My problem with swords is that they are constantly nipping at everything. I've had a lot of problems in the past with bacteria infections caused by injuries from swords nippin at fins and bodies. Hopefully having live plants will give them something to nip at and keep them from bothering the other fish.
