Mouse Cage Calculator


Cage Calculator


Note: This calculator supports your average sized pet shop fancy mouse, weighing around 25 grams. Additionally, the calculator only takes into account the average activity level of a fancy mouse. Some mice are less active and some more. Larger or more active mice will *need* more space.

This calculator is only presented to you for a rough idea of mice per square inch of floor space. You still *must* use your judgment because mouse personalities do play a large roll in tank size.

* We do not recommend 5g tanks (or their equivalent
in floor space) for use by pet caregivers. The small size and height makes it impossible to add everything a mouse will need.

* Housing more than 2 dozen mice together, no matter
the size of the habitat, isn't recommended.
