 None of them are what I would call friends

I Have a total of 6 gliders now. All rescues. Got a pair then 1 then another then another pair.. I have successfully gotten the 2 single gliders together as a pair pretty easily, male and female, only a few months apart in age. So I have been trying for about 5 months now to get them all into one single colony because we built a huge, walk in cage into my house for them all to be in. THIS IS NOT WORKING OUT. I have 2 cages inside the walk in cage and I rotate who's running in the big enclosure and who's in witch cage BUT... They all seem to hate each other. The oldest pair are 5ish (Punkin and Henry), they seem to be VICIOUS twords all of the others, will attack thru the cage bars weather they are in the cage or on it, they will chase the others down even in unfamiliar territory and start a fight to the point that I have to physically seperate them from balling up... now, I have discovered that if I only put the male (Henry) with the others it goes way smoother but if I only put the female in she attacks so that tells me that SHE is the aggressor...
Now if I put the other pair in (2 years old Finnley and allium), it's usually the male (Finnley) that is the aggressor, but they both will be ok if everyone is sleeping..... once they are awake the fight is on..
The youngest pair (1 & 1/12 Dillon and Flutter) are the only ones that actually want to play with everyone. Poor Dillon has a chunk of fur missing from his head because he was asleep in the banana pouch and punkin (Henrys wife) reached thru the cage and grabbed him up and tried to rip him thru the cage bars. Im Glad I was there because I'm afraid she would have killed him that day. I have thought about separating one pair at a time and seeing if they will just miss each other so bad that they'll be willing to deal with the others out of sheer loneliness.... anyone tried this and have you had any luck if so..?
