To Beardie, or not to Beardie?

Sam & Bruce have recently decided that they cannot stand the sight of each other, so I was wondering if I should move one of the tanks to another room in the house? Downstairs maybe?
When getting one out, the other will puff up and hiss if he see's it...the trip to the vet with both of them was very interesting....but they got wormed, so all is good.

Should I find one of them a new home? I really don't want to do that, since I recently had to re-home one of my cats.

Also, can I put Beardies in Martin's Reptile Cages?

i don't know what kind of cage martins has for reptiles, but they need a tank no way else to keep the heat in.

Yea you can move them or you can put paper between the tanks so they can't see each other.

You can keep them in different rooms, or like Kendalle said put up a divider. You you have a background on their vivs? You can get one that is a little longer, and cover all sides except for the front, so they can only see straight out.
Another option would be stacking the vivs... I dont remember what kind of stand you have, but if its one of those iron double stands, you can put one of top of the other. I know of alot of people who use stacking vivs for multiple beardies.


The Martins cage wont hold enough heat for a beardie. Animal Plastics cages are pretty popular though, if you want to look into those.

I have them stacked. It's mostly Sam who starts is, if he's near the front of his tank, he'll get ticked off if he see's me giving Bruce his lunch, or getting him out. He needs to be the first taken out, or he gets testy. If he see's you hold Bruce first-he'll snub you!
Yup covered the front and sides of their little homes. Maybe that's just who he is, cranky! I still love them though, I gotta get a new camera so I can take pix. Did ya'll know that you cannot wash a Digital Camera in the washing machine and expect it to still work?

LOL, they are funny little things, arent they?
As long as they arent horribly stressed out by seeing each other, you dont need to worry about it. You could move them to different rooms if you want, but it isnt worth getting rid of one over! Thats just how the males are... I bet you just cant wait untill they wake up from a brumation- THATS when the hormones are crazy! Hehe
LOL, I cant imagine that would be good for the camera!
