The cutest pair – really… so funny – in that photo they are saying “OK, now we’re here, what are we supopsed to do now?” !!

They must not be left together until both buns are happily grooming the other and being groomed by the other too.
Just one bun doing it does not make a solid bond.

They BOTH have to groom – so still take your time…. it’s good that he’s stopped chasing her to mount her… and it’s good that she runs away when he does.

If they are calm now in each other’s presence, you could try a bit of banana mash or apple juice on their heads / side of body.
Maybe the banana will make her have a groom of Gaston and set off the luurve.

( It sounds as if Gaston doesn’t need help with grooming Nina, but it’s only fair he gets a bit of ‘narna too. )

So, both MUST groom (without the aide of banana (! lol) ) before you put them in a cage together unsupervised….
