    There's an awesome thread pinned to the top of the Sulcata section with information about temps, diet, lighting, etc. titled "For those who have a young Sulcata." You should check it out :)

    The pairs issue is a problem when they are hatchlings.

    I would house them separately, or get one or two more, so you have a group.
