I put them in separate cages right next to each other. They are both calm and resting. I had to split the amount of antibiotic water between them, but that should be fine. The male also gets to actually digest the food he eats, rather than throw it up on the female's poor feet. Could his problem be psychological? They didn't come from a healthy environment at all, the male gives off these really weird vibes, don't know how to describe it. He's mentally a bit off in other ways as well.
