My mom bought two food dishes and two water bottles. Is that really needed? If not then its a way for us to save some money. And if we do need them both, then should we have them both in there at once?

I bought the plastic plates at Walmart that have the sectioned portions. They are four for a dollar. I use one for each glider, even the ones in a cage together. Some gliders I think do fine eating together, and some you have to seperate to give both a chance to eat, it depends on if you have a "food hog" or not. Hope that helps and good luck!

Amanda, I have both of your babies together in a cage right now and they have been sharing the food in one bowl. However, having two bowls is a great idea. You may want to keep one bowl at hand just in case if a first bowl breaks, or if one glider becomes a hog, though I seriously doubt it will happen. I have extra bowls at hand, just in case.

Two water bottles are always a great idea. Once, when my husband and I met with someone to pick up a glider and I bought a water bottle. We brought the glider home and got him fed and all settled in. The next morning, I found the water bottle empty! It leaked! That same day we took it back and told them it was a leaky bottle and replaced with another. So, it is always a good idea to have an extra water bottle. Better be safe than sorry! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumb.gif" alt="" />

I have two dishes in there every night.
One with BML and vegetables and the other with fruits.
One water bottle.

I have 4 dishes and 6 water bottles. For some reason my <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" /> are a tad bit picky as to what bottle they like. hmmm I dont know why they are this way it's not cuz they are spoiled or anything <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> oh wait yes it is <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/multi.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/muchlove.gif" alt="" />

I have three bowls in two food kitchens; one bowl has the BML in one kitchen (because it's so messy) and the other two bowls for fruits and veggies in a second, larger kitchen. I have two water bottles on their cage, one in my purse, one on my desk where I work, one in the back room when I'm relaxing with them... That's only because I'm lazy to carry the one water bottle around with me. But I definitely like leaving the one in my purse because I sometimes forget and don't ever want them to be without water (especially in Phoenix in the summer).

Wow, maybe I have a lot of food bowls for my 2 girls: I usually have one for fruit, one for veggies, one for protein, and 2 with fresh ZooKeeper's. And I want to get a 2nd water bottle to ensure they always are able to find water when they need it. SOMETIMES I will combine some things on a paper plate instead of separating everything.
It may sound like a lot of work, but each morning I dump all extras and put the bowls in a hot soapy sink. Not too bad for my suggies <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cloud9.gif" alt="" />.

I have three gliders in one cage, and I use three bowls and three water bottles. I just want to be sure I prevent fighting over food, and the extra bottles are just an "in case" thing. I would hate to have only one bottle in there and have it leak, leaving them without water.

[:"green"]Amanda,
As you can see, it really varies depending on what you're comfortable with. Some people use multiple feeding bowls & bottles, and others use just one... Once you have your gliders, you'll be able to decide.

I feed with one dish per cage a night… but I have several dishes that I use…lol… the dirty ones go in the dish washer so that I do not have to wash them every day…lol… but it is personal choice and depends on your gliders too…
