 Need help I'm a new sugar mom

Hello everyone I have 2 new sugar gliders that I have barely gotten from my mom. I've had them for almost 4-5 months now and when I got them my mom had the male before the female for almost a year in a cage by himself. When she got the female she stuck them both together without bonding them first. She had the female for 2 weeks then I got them both. They have been doing just fine all the normal noises they are always cuddled up together and there wasnt any signs of problems until 3 weeks ago. The female looked like she was pregnant and then out of no where she looked really skinny but there is no babies around. I have been weighing them ever since that happened and she hasnt been losing weight. They have been getting into fights more and I found a little scratch on her face at first, then a couple of days later she had a wound on her back by her shoulders. I seperated them after I seen the wound for a couple of days and let it heal before I put them back together but they seem to just always fight. Is it bad pairing? Should I just keep them seperated? There is multiple eating stations, there is more than enough food. The male is not neutered I dont know if that has something to do with his aggression. Ever since I seperated them for good he has been hissing nonstop and circling the cage. She doesnt seem to be to worried about it if more so relaxed. I dont know if the male has ever had a cage mate, or the female because my mom just bought them and asked no questions, so I dont know what diet she was on before or if she ever had cage mates either. I am thinking about getting another female would that be a bad idea to increase the colony? I dont want her to be alone or stressed out. I need someone that I can msg and ask some questions to. I just want to be the best mom I can for them, i dont want anyone of them to get hurt or think they have to be forced to live together in the cage with all the fighting. When I take them out to play they dont act aggressive. I dont know why it happened all of the sudden but I dont know why she got skinny or if she was pregnant but it was just odd that she was 2 times bigger than she is right now and all the weight disappeared in one day. Could it have been the male that did something? Please I need help and answers. Anyone can send me a private msg I would appreciate it
