Yes you can use Play Sand. I use it all the time for Master Nero, my dwarf hamster. He loves it! I just sift and put it in a container. He goes to town bathing in it.

So, do Syrians get wet tail easier than dwarf hamsters?

I know syrians must be separated while dwarfs can be housed to gather. My question is, do the dwarf hamsters have to be related? I wouldn't house a male and a female though, if I do go with dwarf hamsters.

As far as I have heard only Syrians can get wet tail. With dwarfs the illness to look out for is Diabetes.

No they do not have to be related, it is just that you have a better chance of them getting along if they have been together since they were very young, like litter mates.
Though it is never a sure thing if any will get along. So if you get two or more, make sure you have extra stand by cages in case you have to separate them.

Oh well then, I would just get one then. I heard syrians tend to be nicer and easier so I will most likely go with a Syrian. Or again, whatever is young at the shelter. Craigslist I am iffy since most of those people are usually taking really crappy care of their pets. Some just can't afford them or have to move and can't take them.

Yes overall Syrians tend to be more owner friendly than dwarfs. But each ham has it's own personality. So be prepared for anything. lol
