They do best alone, in fact, all reptiles do best alone. I've kept small groups of Rosies together off and on for years. In my most recent experience, about 12 to 8 years ago, I had great breeding production by keeping trios together during breeding season then leaving the two females in the cage (about 40 gal size) and doubling or tripling up the males. Worked great until I added an Albino WW male, after a long quarantine (90 to 120 days) he was added to the mix. About three months later, he and another male (that I had for years) were diagnosed with crypto by the county vet. Im old and forget the exact number, but I put 5 to 6 Rosies down, anything that could have been exposed. Moral of the story, keep them alone. Problems are not only contained but also easier to catch quickly. I have made many stupid mistakes but that was one I should have known better than.
