According to the site's cage calculator, it says that you can keep up to 9 mice in a 40 gallon tank. I have a cage that is a bit larger than the 40 gallon breeder tank, with a colony of 8 females - it's a tight squeeze and I only attempted such large colony size after completing many successful introductions and when I was absolutely comfortable with mice keeping.

It is said that generally no more than 6 females should be kept together at a time as keeping more than 6 in one cage doesn't always work out and can be quite difficult - especially if you've never owned mice before.

I personally have 4 girls in a cage of about that size (maybe ~50sq in less) and it works great. I could definitely see myself fitting in another girl or maybe two, though.

Also, hello Freakshow (if you're the HH one)!
