This topper is perfect for my gerbils. They love running around in it and I can keep the bedding in the bottom. Came faster than I expected as well!
i bought this for my mouse and he absolutely loves it! it’s proved to be very secure for him compared to other cage toppers and he is loving climbing all over it! mine took longer for them to make due to some issues they were having but once it shipped it arrived fast and i couldn’t be happier with it! we also cut some fleece blanket up to fit in the tank to use as padding on the wire floor, he loves it!
This cage topper fix over our 40 gallon PERFECTLY. It more than doubles the space for our 2 gerbils and was completely ready to use when we recieved it; now they can use the full bottom aquarium for burrowing. They have not scratched on the cage glass since we put it in, telling me they're less stressed. It took less than 5 weeks for delivery, there are no sharp or unfinished edges, the cage is excellent quality. We did choose the option to add the front door, and I don't believe they charged extra for this. The floor is the same wire as the cage walls but does not seem to bother the gerbils any, and we decided to put a cardboard floor down since this seems to be their new favorite potty spot (we won't have to change the bedding as much!)
It does seem pricy, but if you look at other very similar options this seller was much cheaper. I expect this seller is more profession with better service and quality than you'd get somewhere else (etsy/personal were the only other options I found). They also didn't add cost for shipping, other sellers were charing over $100 to ship. I'm very happy with this purchase and will come here first next time I'm looking for any type of cage.
It took a bit longer than expected to get here but it was worth the wait! High quality materials and a great paint job were just the beginning. Our gerbils love it. They have so much more room to burrow than in their previous 10gal tank and topper. The price is steep but this is the most high quality custom gerbil cage you can buy right now. Also not to mention free shipping!!!
Nice cage topper for active gerbils.
The ladder to go up to the top floor seems a bit unhinged and it slants to one side. Plus it’s very steep and the space to climb down from is awkward as my hamster feel down of the ladder. Also one corner was bent possibly damaged during shipping
A front door and handles would be great. It's awkward and hard to lift off the tank, which is the only way to access the tank. The lack of front door is an issue with interacting with your gerbils. It also bends out of shape easy. This is the best I could find for the price point.
This cage is palatial and well made. Olive Gerbil appreciates the space, and the ability to look out and be the center of attention. I had to make modifications, though…1/2 inch grid floors and ladders had to be covered with fine mesh screen to protect her feet and legs. I would recommend using much smaller grid on your floors and ladders for gerbils, mice, rats and especially hamsters. My screen mesh sheets are easy to clean, but they took my husband and I a couple of hours to make.
a little hard to get a hold of at first but they were very gracious with my order and made changes immediately to my satisfaction.
I purchased the 20 gallon topper for my hamster Hamtaro. He seems to really enjoy the extra space and room to climb and play. I was even able to add a few new toys for him and hideout as well. The only thing is I wish it had a door opening from the front. I have his tank on a side table and with the topper on it, I need a step stool to get into the cage to feed him and take him out and such. I also placed cardboard down so he’s not standing wire so much. Other than that I love that it’s light weight and very spacious. Hamtaro seems to like it too!
