Default Hamsters sharing a playpen?

I have 1 russian dwarf and I've gotten a new syrian.
I have a large clear plastic bin (100cm x 40cm) that I use for a playpen for the russian.

But as I'm starting to tame this new syrian, she will be needing a playpen.
The pen has cardboard on the bottom and just been on plastic normally scars a hammy, then I move her toys into the pen and a few other bit to play with.

If I pick up all the hammy poo's, dab up wee's and turn the cardboard over for each hammy.
They are different species.

My hamsters share (one at a time) a playbox and playbox enrichment items, and they are several different species I've not had any problems with this. I do have strict quarantine though so new hamsters or unwell ones are kept away from shared hamster areas and things.

My hamsters have shared playboxes too and like Vectis, some are different species and genders and I've never had an issue with this. I don't allow hamsters in quarantine or hamsters with illnesses to use these playboxes either.

Thank you for sharing, both seem comfortable after trying them sharing, different times.
I've only had sibling sharing before which was fine.
