Hello! I will be getting my first pair of sugar gliders, however, theres currently only two twin males available.
Im worried one may end up bullying the other and Im wondering what youre opinion is. Theyd both be neutered and are siblings. Thank you! :)

Our colony is
(males neutered)

sophie, scarface, riggs - female
gus, gizmo, Link - male.

Gus is the boss, he will sometimes give a short chase and bully the others just
a little. Usually he is fine. All the others get along fine.
we are going to try to add a male pig pen and female jasmine to the 6 gliders,
they used to be in this colony but were given away and now brought back for
health reasons.


We sold our second colony, was to much work. they also got along fine.
Pinkie, connor - males
cupcake, dalila, shylow - females.

I have three gliders in the same colony. It'll be fine, especially if they're neutered.

sibling boys typically do fine together neutered and even intact if there is no female around.

Personally I would still recommend neutering it helps reduce the smell of boys and does reduce risk of issues long term, plus I just always advocate neutering unless you are experienced and breeding ethically and responsibly.

I keep 3 neutered males together. One of them is unrelated and was introduced as an adult. They do well together and never hurt each other. A bit of squabbling and tsk-ing is normal, but they never actually fight.
