Is two guinea pigs in one 2 X 4 C & C cage too small?
 
2x4 is the minimum cage space requirement for 2 Piggies. However, if they are Male you may need a bigger cage as they tend to want more room. I have 2 Females in a 2x4 and besides normal dominance issues, I haven't had any problems.

So yes, 2x4 should be big enough if you don't have any behavior issues between them. :)

Hope I helped!
 
Would 2x5 work?
 
Pinky, do you have Boys or girls?
 
I have 2 girls in a 2x4 and they seem quite happy!
 
With experience from my two boys- more space is better. Not every boy pair is the same though. Some may not mind a 2X4 cage. So... If you want to try a 2X4, I don't see a problem with it. But, if you are starting to see issues between the two(more bickering than normal), then I'd say expand it to a 2X5 or 3X5. It's all trial and error, in my opinion. :D Just make sure it's not anything less than the 2x4 though. lol

Right now, for my 2 piggies, I recently expanded it to a 3X6.

Good luck!! ❤️
