 Introducing sugar gliders

So I have read a lot about the introducing of sugar gliders and I can't find exactly what I want, so I thought I'd make a post about it. I have 2 pairs of sugar gliders the first 2 are 6 and the 2nd two are almost 11. They are a boy and girl pair (Waco and Odessa) and Waco, he is more aggressive and took longer to bond with and Odessa is so very sweet and loving and bonded very quickly. The other two (aristocrat and accent) aristocrat, he is the very sweet one and accent is very mean and still taking months to bond with.
So I introduced Odessa(female) and aristocrat(male) because they both have the melo calm nice personalities and they get along well and snuggle with each other in the pouch when I take them out.
Today I put Odessa and aristocrat together in our tent and let them get their scents on each other and then tried to introduce Waco with Odessa still in there but kind of out of the way(but she was becoming a hassle so I put her away so I could focus on being able to separate the boys if need be) and aristocrat kind of just was walking around not to interested in Waco but Waco was very interested in him and was following him around and everything. A little while later I see Waco opening his mouth at aristocrats feet and I'm not sure if he was nibbling on him or what because he did it several times and aristocrat didn't seem to be bothered but I took Waco away just to prevent any injuries of Waco biting his feet off or something! I wasn't sure what to think about this so I looked everywhere I could for some information and didn't find anything so here I am writing this! Is this normal? I do not want injuries. It would be nice if they all got along so I could get one big cage for them but I'm definitely not going to force anything.
(I haven't even tried to introduce accent and Waco because they seem like they'd be very aggressive towards each other. One night they were in their cages looking at each other and just hissing at one another! So that's a little scary for me.)

Well i figured since they were all my most calm temered ones it would be okay, but i know waco is a little protective over odessa so i wasnt sure, but i didnt know why he was trying to bite just at his feet rather then just attacking him or biting anywhere

Not sure if this helps, but I've read in most cases 2 males plus a female usually won't work, in most cases you should have more females then males, anyone's welcome to correct me if i'm wrong.
