Getting ready to go bush, so only have a minute.
Of course you had a bad experience, You had no idea what you were doing.
There is no one answer, There is a trend. The very best is, clutchmates or clutches hatched together. The as young as possible. Then before sexual maturity. Then after that, you have to get lucky, but its entirely possible.

With adults, that have not been kept together, put them together in the beginning of your brumation period. Then anytime their feeding response is low. Then forget about it.hahahahahahaha

At one point I hibernated my snakes by species, the getula in this box, the Mexicana in that box, etc. That plus raising them together, allowed for very socially tolerant snakes.

Also, forget about the all or nothing approach, like did you ever have a problem, Not sure I can remember, but I had lots of problems doing it your way. That I remember.

The reality is, over the decades I have lost animals. In most cases, I let them out(forgot to close the door right)
What is so weird is, its common sense and well known, that if you raise any social animal in solitary confinement, to adulthood it will not make a good candidate for a breeding group. And that includes humans. It includes chickens, cows, horses, birds, mice rats, crickets, anything. We know this, yet folks get their control on and rationalize keeping snake solitary in little plastic things, then suddenly expect them to be SOCIAL. What you just did is something they specialize on every night on criminal minds. Mass murderers. Of course you had problems.
