    That's not the best cage in the world so maybe look to upgrade in the future. You have a Syrian? I'd remove the tubes. If he's got full pouches he'll get stuck. It's also a weak point to easily escape. I'd highly recommend filling the tray almost up to the top with bedding. What size is the wheel? Syrians need 11" wheel so if it's smaller than that then maybe look to upgrade that too. Your ham will thank you! :)

    When would you recommend upgrading his cage?

    As soon as you're in a position to do it really. The minimum accepted size is 80x50 for Syrians and 70x40 for dwarf species. A good cage is the Alaska. On zooplus it's £30 ISH. I have one and it's pretty good to be fair

    You also can get a 5% first time customer discount from Zooplus, £35 for free delivery. I picked up a small ceramic dish with it last time for the free delivery
