They're gold. xD What's your cage size? A 10 gallon is good I think, but the ventilation.. I don't know.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Well, I haven't gotten the cage yet, but I was considering my ten gallon that I'm not using. But I am concerned about the ventilation and the ammonia building up inside... Of course I would spot clean everyday and deep-clean every 7 days, but still. Plus CritterTrails are to small and the one I had broke apart really easily.... :p

If you spot clean every day a 10 gallon should be fine for a mouse or a dwarf hamster...I think it would be too small for a Syrian though.

That's what I was realizing.. I know they need a lot of space because in the wild they run hundreds of miles. But I also can't decide between Critter Trail and 10 gallon tank. I am not to sure about the Critter Trail so I am probably going to use the 10 gallon.

If you're not set already, you might consider a pair of gerbils! They're very social and loving, not to mention speedy! They love to run and play, and they actually adjust to your day/night schedule very easily. They are desert animals, and thus don't produce very much waste. I have only ever had one bite me, and I have had them for 14 years. I keep two in a ten gallon, but it is a little stuffy when they grown old, because they love the room to run. They also love to climb and jump!

Bettas- Lyle, Ghost, Carnival, Captain, Wiffle and The Commander
Goldies- Annie, Turnip, Bowie and Milk
Pleco- Marlon Brando
Kuhli Loaches- Armin
ADF- Captain Sandwich and Poptarts
