    Hi
    the best way to introduce a new lovie is to buy one and keep
    their cages right next to eachother for a week or 2. then
    let the older one play on top of the new ones cage and visa
    versa.
    Is your male handleable? If yes after 1 week take both of
    them out and let them play together. if they start to argue
    seperate them and try again 2 days later. Eventually they
    will like eachother.
