Oh dear! I'm afraid it sounds like they don't like each other! Did you introduce them properly or just put them in together and hope for the best? @Wiebke is good for advice. Can you help Wiebke?

Hi! I am very sorry for your loss!

Did you introduce them properly on neutral ground? It sounds like Luna felt invaded and bit in defence. After a full-on bite, guinea pigs won't go back together again; it sounds like that has hppened in your case unfortunately.
