Things are going surprisingly smoothly with my new girl ever since her second escape attempt. I've started setting the main tank and the quarantine tank nearby each other for short periods of time so that my old girls can become curious about Selina and vice versa, as well as letting Selina watch me handle the other mice from inside her cage. Seeing that the other mice aren't afraid of my hand seems to have made her a bit more confident, and she's started coming to me when I put my hand in the cage rather than forcing me to scoop her up from beneath ever since. That said she still is a bit jumpy in my hand so I always keep two fingers gently clasped around the base of her tail just in case. But all in all so far so good!

Great - but how far apart is the quarantine from the main tank? No offense, but I dont think that's an adequate quarantine - viruses and illness can be airborne, so they should be at least on another side of the room.

Two to three feet at least. And they're only kept that way for about five minutes at a time.
