First let me say congrats on the new conure!!!

Second, please do not keep the conure and budgie housed together, as your conure could very easily hurt and maim your budgie, and since you have stated that your conure bites at your budgie already and vice versa, this is just a giant fail waiting to happen. Please separate you two birds into separate cages. It's ok to have them next to each other, but far enough away that your conure cannot harm your budgie. He could easily bite your budgie's toe right off! That wouldn't be good for anyone!!!

There is a huge size difference between the two, especially with the conure's huge beak Please do not house them together for your budgie's safety. If they don't get along, put them in different rooms and in separate cages. and spend time with them by themselves.

Please separate the two birds right away.
Budgies should not ever be housed with a conure.
The conure is much bigger with a stronger beak and and can easily kill your budgie. As Kristen indicated, you can keep the cages near each other but not so close they can reach one another through the bars.

I fully agree with the advice given, it is imperative that you house your new conure on a different cage away from your budgie.
Not only is your budgie at a very serious risk of being severely injured or worst case scenario killed, but also every new bird should be quarantined for a period of about 1 month on a different cage and room from the rest of the flock. Quarantine is done as a preventative measure to avoid any possible illness the new bird may carry to be passed to your other bird(s).

It's never a good idea to house different species of birds together on a same cage, especially so when said species are so different in terms of size and characteristics.
Common sense should play a big role here.

I have budgies, tiels a parrotlet and a gcc.. I never allow my conur to interact with the other birds, the only ones I allow to interact are tiels and budgies, they just agree to disagree and I don't worry about them.
