I have succes on both side of this issue. I had 2 females living together and I seperated them so I coul;d breed the one and soon buy another male for the other, but in the mean time she is doing very well. I have had no problemns with her at all. I do give her alot more attention mind you, so I am glad to hear that your little guy will be very well loved. Giving him a friend is not a bad idea in the future when you can afford one, this will make him a bit more happy when youy can't be with him. Remember though you should do an introduction period before just putting them together. Some people don't, but I find it works out very well and my gliders end up happy in the end.
