How many mice for a 20 Gallon?

Post by AnimalsAreLife on Sat Jan 21, 2017 9:37 am

Hi, I am new to this forum! So, I have a 20 Gallon Long tank, with 360 square inches of floor space. How many mice do you think could live happily in such an enclosure? I know it's kind of small but I was hoping it could accommodate at least 3 female mice.

A 20 long is the perfect size for five girls or one boy!

Yep, up to 5 girls. Here's the cage calculator http://petmousefanciers.forumotion.com/t997-cage-calculator#2354.

I had five girls in a 20L and there was plenty of room for hides, a saucer wheel, hammocks, climbing structures, elevated feeding platform, etc.
