Having a Gerbil as a Pet

Today I randomly chose to buy a gerbil. I've had mice in the past so I figured they were similar. After buying Aspen I read a little on gerbils and everything I read said to buy two or more at a time for companionship. I really just want to have one because that way I don't have to clean the cage as much and it's just all around easier. Is having just one okay? or should I go buy another?

Its better to have them in pairs. Gerbils are very social creatures by nature, they like to communicate. If your gerbil doesnt have a companion, it can get depressed and can die. You said your worried about more to clean up? Don't worry, gerbils aren't very messy
