Split Cage a Success! Finally!

It's been just over a month (5 weeks) since I started a split cage with Capri (nutmeg) and my newly adopted Sonata (lilac).
When i first intro'ed the baby Sonata in a split cage (cage in a tank style) I had nothing but problems. Though Sonata was a pup Capri didn't care. They bit each others tails, and the pup actually bit off a toe of Capris. So i put them in my large 55G tank split set up for a few week, and a few days ago placed them back into the 20G cage in a tank split cage again.
Last night I took out the divider and just watched them for the evening, they were great, and now are curled up in a nest together!

YEAY!

So that's one down, three more to go!

Here is a picture of Capri -



And an older picture of Sonata as a pup -

Thanks Everyone.
This has been such a stress reliever. All these split intros and other problems I've been having with my clan have just made me feel cruddy. But seeing those two all cuddled up and grooming one another just makes everything SO much better!

Oh and Padfoot, i now have THREE (out of 15) ruby eyed gerbils, are you proud of me LOL :p
