I was wondering if it was safe to house New Calidonian Crested Geckos and Mountain Horned Dragons. Anyone know?

I don't know about "safe," but in general it's not a good idea to house multiple species together, and depending on the species it's sometimes not a good idea to house multiple individuals (even of the same species) together. In general, lizards aren't social animals and don't normally encounter other individuals in the wild unless they want to mate with, or eat, the other.

Notice I say "in general," because invariably someone will chime in and say I don't know what I'm talking about because they keep species X and Y together with "no problems."
If you for some reason feel you must, the larger the enclosure the better. Also, provide NUMEROUS hiding places and "visual barriers," i.e. provide the opportunity for the lizards to feel like they're not always having to look at the other animals and get stressed out (is he going to eat me?).
