I agree, definitely not recommended -- your best option is to keep a small group of fire skinks consisting of one male and a couple of females (not more than one male because they tend to be territorial and fight). For various reasons, a single-species setup is usually the best way to go for most types of herps, except in some cases if you have two kinds that are very similar and have similar requirements, but even then you have to be extra careful to make sure they are compatible.

Fire skinks are one of the world’s most beautiful lizards and a group of them, housed in a well decorated terrarium, would make a very spectacular display!
