    I would just leave them confined at a point where they are stable and comfortable with each other. Giving them extra space right now will be a backwards step. It will be worth it in the end. Just...

    As Tonibun says, rabbits need a defined day / night cycle - adding permanently 'on' lights would disrupt their natural cycles.

    Big, heavy ceramic dog bowl. You can always put a smaller bowl inside it. I also use large plastic plant pot saucers underneath water bowl that may get tipped up or splashed in - saves on puppy pads.

    This would be my first thought as well. They can't get away from each other, so anything can set them off. Fur pulling is fairly normal in a new bond - so keep an eye on them. Be prepared to separate...
