So I put in a second wheel but it collected dust all week!  Apparently they love running together.  So, some of my tanks might appear boring but the mice are happy.  


This tank is for one if my fellas.  You can't really see it, but there is an egg carton buried.  He lives chewing that.


I love this setup, is it a 10 gallon? I need to get some more egg cartons, everyone uses them!

Yep, that's a 10g. I've just got the basics and there is still plenty of room. You can buy all the fancy toys in the world if you want, mice will love them. But they also love egg cartons, cereal boxes and toilet paper rolls just the same! And as you can see, they like to bury everything.

So am I. XD I do think it may be another few months, but at least I've been able to get lots of great info!

They are super easy to make and my girls really enjoy them! In your cage, you could just set one over a toilet paper tube (have the toilet paper tube under the bridge). They add a lot to the cage and don't take up a lot of space.

I totally skipped over this post... but I love the idea! A few days ago I didn't even know what MES stood for and now I can't wait to make my first one! Something like that would be great. I'm really hoping my parents will let me get a hot glue gun so I can make toys easier.
