Here's Millie's new custom built 3-level home.
*update* I learned not to allow the wheel to stick out of the tank as the
female robo hamsters tends to climb out of the tank through the pole... They
are so smart!
Now that Coco has passed, I was afraid that if I put Carla and Mocha
together, they would end up fighting. I had done that before and they did
fight. So in order to put Mocha and Carla together, but I had to split the
tank into two sections so that they can live together.
I designed a new home for Coco and Carla today. Here's a 4-level home
aquarium tank using plexi glass, foam boards and of course carefresh bedding
and pine shavings. The girls were checking out the are while I was
constructing their new home. For some reason they were tired out and were
hanging in their new spacious bedroom area while I took these photos. Now
with lots of area to run around in, they'd be much more happier.
Here are the side views of the tank.
Here's a detailed photo of the first floor where their resting area leads to
a pentagon-shaped den and their new sand bathing compartment. It also gives
them access to the second level where I placed their food and water. The
third floor is where their wheel resides; fourth floor has more spacious
room for them to run around in.
I haven't seen much of creatively designed hamster homes on the website. I
did find a few that utilize a LOT of room with tunnels and containers. But I
don't have the room to allow my robos to run around freely. So
I decided to re-design and built Coco and Carla's new 3-level home in their
10 gallon aquarium tank. I wanted to utilize the entire tank space as much
as possible. I think I did a pretty good job on my second try. I
figured instead of spending $40-50 on a small hamster cage, I can spend half
as much and build a custom home for them. Here
are the photos of the newly designed home. Email me to let me know what you think.
I moved the girls into a 10 gallon aquarium tank and design a two level home.
The 1st level is their sleeping quarters, wheel and they have lots of space
to run around. I placed their food, extra bed and water at the 2nd level.
