Parrotlets are known for aggression - I believe they are the most aggressive species of parrot. Sometimes parrotlets can exist as a bonded pair in the same cage, but if there are any signs of aggression, they can't be together because it can escalate and end in serious injury or death. Additionally, male and female parrotlets living together in the same cage successfully will most likely mate and the female will most likely lay eggs, which is very hard on her body and to be avoided if you aren't looking to breed.
I really like the side-by-side you got. They still have access to each other, but they also can escape each other. You can let them be supervised together out of their cages if you wish, but when you aren't there you will know that the worst that can happen is a toe injury (parrotlets tend to go for toes in other birds, btw).
