Default Introducing new robos

I already have a pair of robos that are around 4 months old, I really want 2 more. I have a really big cage/tank for them. I already have 4 of everything possible, just cuz I overybuy things I find are c ute.

Is it a good idea to introduce a younger pair of robos to the pair I already have ?

I also do have a couple of zoozones for any falling out.

That's a definite no I'm afraid, you can only keep same sex robos from the same litter that have never been separated together, if you introduce another pair there could be some serious, even fatal fighting.
If you really want two more then keep them in a different cage from the first two.

It`s a no go from me too. Roborovksi hamsters even in pairs can be difficult to keep together long term and adding more would cause fights. By all means get more robos if you want to, but keep them in their own tanks/cages. Never feel the urge to experiment either because the two you have now could end up needing split up and you will end up with separated hamsters all over! x

I agree with cypher and racinghamster. Keeping Robos from the same litter can be difficult so introducing new ones is not a good idea. Within the first week I had to separate 3 boys and 2 lived together fine for a few months then we had to separate them as well.

Another vote for not introducing new hamsters to your pair. It would very very likely end in serious fighting and the original pair could also fall out.

Perhaps your zoozones could have a new hamster instead?!
