 Two 1 yr old male brothers. Any advice one one being very aggressive

I recently bought my first two sugar gliders. I was told they were brothers from different liters. I have been reading and searching all the info I can find. Needless to say there are a lot of conflicting info on the internet. My issue at the moment is one is very aggressive towards the other. Any advise?

i dont do BML. with mealworms I do about 3-4 every other night. sometimes as many as 6 mealworms. BUT with 7 gliders I usually only take 3 or 4 glider to the kitchen for mealworms. We have one glider that is fat, another one slightly large, the others are a good size.

I went last night and got all the ingrediants that I could find for the bml diet. I have to order their supplements. We have two huge pet stores and neither of them have it. I read that you can use flaxseed powder in place of wheat germ. Is this true? He was better last night so I am wo dering if the mealworms given the night before caused him to be more aggressive. I only give them 1 each every other night. What is the recommendation on meal worms? Thanks so much for your help.

cutting nails is tricky, sounds like they need it. I suggest give a little extra fruits and veggies for now. get a diet like ohpw or bml, much more healthy for them. I believe pocket pets not always honest and some things they suggest are not the best. We have 1 aggressive glider in 7 colony, she gets most aggressive after we give out dried mealworms. On some bad nights we put her in small extra cage for that night. she seems to be getting alittle nicer, and we need to bond with her, I'm hoping that will help.

Dont know about being properlyintroduced but I am assuming not. My husband met them in town and picked them up. However I do get them out everyday and hold them. My arms and hands look like they were in a shredder..lol. thats alright though I am determined and they are worth it.

Sorry. They are intact. Just got them a few days ago. Previous owner said they were handled everyday but Im thinking not. They do have an exercise wheel. She was feeding them a cheaper pellet and chicken nuggets. I have changed their diet and have taken the pelleta out. I am still researching a good proper diet for them but I habe replaced their pellet with either chicken, eggs or beef along with fresh fruits and veggies. I do believe they could use a bigger cage although theirs is big enough for several hanging toys and cup to place things like veggies in for them to hunt. I have a five foot by 2 foot cage but I quickly found out they can es ape from that one. I have never owned sugar gliders before and of course the first advice that I got on google search was from a compant that doesnt seem real popular hear so I have started my search again here.

so little information to go on. need a running wheel?, need bigger cage?, they were NOT properly introduced? neutered or intact? do they have toys? are they getting a proper diet? do they have foraging cups with treats to hunt?
