so as my previous post stated i am a really new sugar glider owner (like within the first 2 weeks of having them) and we put them in the same cage and everything was fine it was actually really good they all seemed like they were getting along they were all bonding in the same pouch amazingly well and seemed like they weren't crabbing as much as when we just got them and then my mother decided since the baby glider (the youngest which is unknown but is definitely the smallest by a large shot) was handled the most already by the previous owner that it would be fine to start petting them in the pouch by opening and sticking her hand in there.
well it seemed fine so we did it 2 and it was still fine a few days later then she decided since he was the most handled it was okay to take him out of the pouch and hold him in her hands and now it seems like everywhere we turn the him and the next youngest a 9 month old female is fighting all the time.
the 2 oldest sugar gliders could care less they just want to be left all alone but blossom the oldest female isn't afraid to fight the the youngest female if she starts a fight in the pouch and now it seems like either sassy (9 month old) or wicket (youngest male) are separated in different pouches (we have three in there at any point in time if not its 2) even if the other is with the oldest 2 and if wicket it with the oldest 2 and sassy goes in there she kicks em out of the pouch and now they seem to be drenched even tho there is just the water pitcher the only has a drop of water any given second and one one of there tails isn't as puffy and stuff on a certain part of there tail(i believe its wicket tail i didn't get to see it clearly)
I've also caught them balled up fighting a couple times and now im scared to leave any his or mad sound alone cause they'll get trapped in a pouch during a fight and im just scared for my babies and i need help please please help me. i dont know what to do

You need to separate them immediately if they are balling up. If you don't have a second cage you should get one and put the ones who are balling up into separate cages.

If I read right from your previous post one of the gliders was from a different home. If you didn't keep them separate for 30 days, do scent swapping, and then an introduction in a neutral location, then it's very possible they are having territorial issues.

After you separate them into different cages, you can go through the process and it might work, but it will take time. For now, for your glider's safety, you need to separate the ones who are balling up or they may get very seriously hurt.
