Brandon,
The dimpled Kraft paper I mentioned is textured and brown. It actually looks good in cages because of the texture and color, compared to say newspaper.

Yes, one rosy may stop feeding, or may cruise the cage all of the time whereas the other snake is hiding/resting.

Two snakes can "learn" to cohabitate; that is, the one with the problem eventually accepts the other snake. I don't know if it happens all of the time or just some of the time, as I only kept the ones together that seemed to be fine with each other initially.

Another tip, cooling snakes together in the same enclosure can help them bond or tolerate each other from then on. This has worked with kingsnakes in my care on many instances.

So you see, you will have to watch, learn and perhaps try some things. Offering many hide spots will help. I think eventually going with a larger cage may be a good idea too, depending on the rosy locale, as some locality rosies get much larger than others. What kind do you have?
