@Eckle:  I would bite the bullet and return him. I know you were excited to rescue him but you can’t save all the piggies you come across. I had a similar situation with a water dragon. If your other boys are getting along there’s no need to stress them out. You did a good deed by trying but it’s not working out.

@Eckle:  My only suggestion would be to get a friend for him, but since you said that’s not an option, I think you have to return him. It’s clear he’s not happy being alone and your boys aren’t a good fit for him. I know it’s hard because you wanted it to work out, but I think you did your best.

I’m sorry that it didn’t work out. Frown

Do you have a friend or a family member who would be willing to take him, or would they (or you) be willing to foster him while you look for a different home for him?  I would really hate to see him returned to the petstore, since he’d already been there so long and wasn’t in great shape in the first place.

@Eckle:  only other suggestion i could think of that outhers didnt say would be buy a female (get one fixed) maybe he will be better with a female? unless one of your”boys” is really a female and that is why they are fighting?  you seam to be doing a good job at interducing them but maybe get a bunny cage and put it next to your other cage?with a piece of clear plastic between the two so they cant bite throught i knowthe chances of biting another though 2 cages but they do put there feet on them…besides that IDK? sorry
