I would definitely keep them separate. First you do not know the sex of the other (could be a late blooming male, which is very common) and the size difference. The larger animal would stress out the smaller. I would separate the 50 gallon with plexiglass, giving the smaller gecko less room. As far as when to finally put them together they should be at least 14 months old each and the opposite sex of course. However IMO it is best to house animals in their own cages and only introduce when breeding. They do much better with the lack of competition and stress. Everything else you mentioned about your set up is great. Iím glad you are going with the paper towel substrate, a much safer route =).
