I have been looking at Roborovskis, they seem to be the most fun to watch and there are a lot of them around here.
Mostly I was looking for suggestions on habitat and food. I would like to give them a home prepared diet if I can, do you have any suggestions for what to include? As far as a habitat I do have my old mouse cage, it is a 10 gallon fish tank and I had a custom topper made for it. The topper is a single level of 1/4" powder coated mesh and is very secure, the top latch has a spring and it sits very flush to the top of the tank. Here is the only picture I can find, the top is open here obviously-
I am willing to make a purchase if that set up doesn't work though. My main concern with that topper is it is powder coated. I know that chinchillas cannot be in powder coated cages because they chew and eat the powder coating but is that a concern with hamsters?
