How can I add a second IPv6 to "/etc/network/interfaces"? # #
The iproute2 method is the one I've used. You can do the same thing with inet6 instead of inet for IPv6 network addresses
@Nate Bohman that actually helped, I did a stupid mistake and had a fault in my thought.
Do you have two ethernet interfaces or do you want to share only one with two IPv6 ?
@Benoît Rouits yes one interface with two ip's, I solved it.
solution was to add the last two lines.

iface eth0:1 inet6 static
hwaddress aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
address 2a03:2222:2e:33e:555:c5ff:fe84:0018
netmask 64
gateway fe80::1
iface eth0:1 inet6 static
address 2a03:2222:2e:33e:555:beef:ca1f:1337
