1.5 centimeters is greater than 1/2".
You shouldn't have the space between the bars any larger than 1.25 cm

Although it may not seem like a big difference to you, the budgies can get their heads caught between the bars if they are more than 1.25 cm apart.

Taming and bonding with two budgies is more difficult than one. Keeping them in separate cages and working with them individually is a good option. In about six months or so you should then be able to house them together without losing the bond with either of them.

oh! sorry, i misread also it was late at night haha. I found one with 1.2cm
and i may get one budgie then introduce one later on. the only reason i wanted two was because in the past i have had a lot of cockatiels, i had a budgie when i was about 10 years old as my first bird. im not sure if this is true but i think mostly all of them (not the budgie) became too dependant on me or something they also started screaming aswell. or maybe it was just because i didnt understand how to train/and teach good behaviour. i have read about the petting thing and maybe that was the reason and maybe they thought i was their mate or something im not sure.

Heres the cage i found

The cage you've chosen looks like a good option.

If you get one budgie now and one later on, please remember sure to observe quarantine for the new budgie.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room where your current bird(s) are housed for a period of 30-45 days.
Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks.
Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

It is also a good idea to always take a new budgie in to see an Avian Vet for a "well-birdie" check-up. This allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet and the vet can establish a baseline for your bird in case of any future illnesses or injuries.


Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"
