Update from about 10 minutes ago!
I decided to put Armin and "Ronnie" in the tub.Armin was really nervous at first.I still cannot pick him up and had to let him climb out of his cage himself."Ronnie" and Armin hit it off right away! Imediatly they were grooming eachother!!!!!!!! No squabbles at all.Armin kept following "Ronnie" around and because "Ronnie" is friendly and would come to me,Armin followed and would sniff at me and you know when rats grab on to your hand with their little fingers,he did that!
I let him see me scratch "Ronnie" behind the ears (something "Ronnie" REALLY likes and makes him brux) and let him see me pick "Ronnie" up and let him down again.
Then after about 20 minutes of letting them run around together,I climbed in the tub with them! "Ronnie" took this opportunity to climb all over me and he tried "digging" in my leg,silly rat! Armin hid underneath my leg,but at least he didn't panic.
So things are working out it seems and I am so happy with this breakthrough! Tommorrow I am going to try and see if they will live together in the same cage.Because their cages were side to side,they obviously got used to eachother,as in the tub tonight they got along well.
I have a few pictures...which I will post in a few minutes.
