They are both male tarantula just didn't think you could keep them housed in the same tank separated by a divider

as long as there is a divider they cant get to each other and so will be fine. If both male, no chance of hybridization but if that divide came down, only one male likely to survive (if lucky).

a small to medium size funarium type enclosure will be fine something about 20/25 cm in length. Approx 20cm high as well.

I've seen photos of dividers failing in the past. Make sure it goes clear to the bottom of the enclosure and is secured on both sides. Also make sure its something they cant destroy like screen, cardboard, thin plastic or even wood. Make sure there is no ventilation holes in it also.
I would highly recommend not dividing and tank.
