Hi
Iam getting tow males brothers who are not neutered and have been together for life. They get along well and are already tame and sweeet. Are there any good reasons to still get them fixed?

:welcomegc:

You say they have been together for life. How old are they? This will may make a difference in whether or not you may want to have them neutered.

Most males will at some point establish dominance. Sometimes it can cause problems to the point both will need to be neutered and other times one will submit so all goes well.

Does it continue to go well dunno Only time will tell. Depending on their age, IF you want to keep them intact just watch them and see what happens.

On the other hand, there is going to be lots of scent marking with two intact males. More than there might be were they neutered. So that would be one reason to have them neutered. It also calms them down somewhat. Depending on how long they have been in their present home, you may see different personalities once they are in your home, especially in the beginning.

Observe them for a few days and see how they react to their new home.

I agree with Karen. Also if down the line you get more gliders and one is a girl you will have fighting between them, just because they can smell her.
