Well they do need to start being handled but it is difficult at that age. One option is to do half the viv - leaving them in the other half, then scooting them over and doing the other half. Other than that I tend to put a cricket tub in the viv, shoo one into it, put lid on then and repeat with the other. You then have them both captive in tubs. It is a good oportunity to weigh them and give them a good look over for things such as retained shed etc. If it is going to take a while to clean the viv then you could cover the tubs with a tea towel or something to make them feel more secure and keep them warm.
