Two males and one female would almost certainly result in A LOT of aggression as the males will be fighting over the female and the female will be fighting them both off. If you got a third male then you MAY be OK, but once again it could result in fighting as they would all be wanting their patch for if a female were to come along. Best bet is stick with keeping two as best you can, terrapins don't need "friends" :)
