Great wide tank. Tons of digging with all that bedding.

But that multicolored rope dog toy should go eventually. I have used them a few times in the past. They are great at first. Great for climbing and hanging. But the mice love to pee on them and they are a pain to clean.

Make sure you soak it in a sink or tote using only water for at least 10 minutes. Drain it soak it a second time(10 more minutes), drain it, then soak it a 3rd time(10 more minutes) before hanging it up to air dry over a day.The more mice you have the quicker it will become dirty.

The water will become more clear each time you soak the thing. Letting it soak will remove more then simply running it under the water.

If it is put in the tank wet they will lick and chew on it as well as pee on it as it smells different. Them licking is why you dont want to use any soaps when cleaning.
If you give it a day to dry out so it is dry to the touch that will reduce the licking.
