I'm glad you got them getting along. Future reference, you definitely want a 10-14 day quarantine period, and slow introductions on neuteral ground, such as the bed (as mentioned) or the bath tub works out well. And sometimes when you're introducing a younger rat (particularly a male) to an older rat, when they're about 4-6 months they'll be trying to find their place in the pecking order, sometimes acting out trying to move up. It's normal. I've known some people to have to seperate for a few weeks until things calm down again.
