Until yesterday, I only had 1 glider, now I have two. I never thought about setting up different bowls of food for them. Last night I just feed 1 bowl for bml and 1 for fruit and veges. I just read somewhere that I should put out multiple bowls so they won't fight.
Should I be doing this?? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/nixweiss.gif" alt="" />

I am not sure – and will be interested to hear the answer, I have three in once cage and have never really had an issue – attached is a pick of their hanging gondola – I put a small plate in with the food on it…

That's a neat idea Xglider. So you have three of those hanging? Is it hard to clean though?

I would put two cups out just so one doesnt hog the food. One my become or already is dominant and my try to snap at the other. Go ahead and put two just to avoid this. You should be able to find some bird feeding cups at any petstore, I just added one to mine for my new addition, I got these half circle looking cups it was like the medium size they had. They have "L" shaped prongs on the back so you can hang it anywhere in the cage that has a horizontal bar. I can get you a pic if you would like.

Slick: I am pretty sure Xglider means there is one of those hanging bowls in the cage that houses 3 gliders. So they all eat from the same place.

Jason I'd love to see a pic. My cups hang on the side too, but I have no idea what your talking about with yours.

Badgers, that too cute

I put 2-3 bowls per cage in one larger dish to house it but they get 2 primary bowls and sometimes a third bowl with their frutis/veggies, depends on if I want to split it up or if Bill put out a snacking bowl and no one ate it...

I have three suggies in one cage. They eat in their kitchen which is on the floor of their cage. I've been trying different things lately cause they seem to leave a lot of food untouched. So, they have at times had 3 bowls in the kitchen and other times 1 bowl. They don't seem to fight at all.

we dscovered moving the food up made a difference- the kitchen on the bottom meant one of the girls wasn't eating much!
