    Our baby buttons are now old enough I need to separate from the parents. I am left with 2 males and a female. I planned to put them all in together since I have an odd number. Are they likely to fight?

    Very likely, especially if there's a female present.

    The two males could probably live together peacefully as long as there are no females, though.
  3. 2 males with 1 female will breed the female to death. 1 male and 1 female is still a ratio that I would not do. The males are just toooooo randy.

    Any suggestions on how to split them up? or what to do with the extra guy?
