Gerbil split tank introduction. Here's a how-to: http://www.egerbil.com/splittank.html
Chilly and Peppy have been in a split tank for eight days, switching sides a few times a day. They seemed comfortable with each other, and I saw some grooming through the mesh, so I removed the wall to see what would happen...and they started grooming right away. A very good sign!
(In case you were wondering about Peppy's eyes, he was blind from birth.)
Note: It's better not to have so many boxes and tubes in the tank during an introduction. I didn't know that at the time, but during later introductions I've discovered that some gerbils can get territorial about those things, or hide inside them, making it difficult to break up a fight if things don't go well.
