    Hi, I have had my dwarf hamster for a week. We have a pets at home cage with tubes. Peanut now uses the corner tube to sleep in. Should I remove the tubes?
    Also I wanted to make the cage even bigger, it’s a medium size cage, with plastic base and wire top. I have seen Habitrail ovo type cages can I add this to a normal wire top cage or would I have to modify the cage.
    Just love Peanut so much and want her to have as much space as possible.

    Unfortunately adding modules is broken floor space so doesn't make it a lot bigger. Personally I'd get the Alaska cage off zooplus. Plenty big enough to start with.

    What size wheel do you have? Dwarf hamsters need an 8 inch upright wheel. :)

    Hey we have just got dwarf hamster from pets at home and bought their recommended cage - close up pic add to show him doing same thing. I just want to make sure he has big enough cage aswell. Just went with what we thought was expert advice ? Have you upgrade to anything or stayed with that same cage ?
