Double Tank Setup with 200cm x 40cm for Robo Lily
User Scyza from the German Hamsterforum made this beautiful home (pic 1) from two tanks for her Roborowskii dwarf hamster Lily. Lily used to live in a 100cm x 40cm (39" x 16") tank which seemed to small (pic 2). So another matching cupboard and same size tank was bought for a total size of 200cm x 40cm (78" x 16"). Then one small glass side was removed from each tank with a razor blade (pic 3). The two tanks were glued together with aquarium silicone and a small piece of plexi glass was fittet into the small gap in the floor (pic 4). A divider for the sand area was glued in with transparent aquarium silicone (pic 5).
An overview of the complete cage is shown in pic 6, almost half of the cage is furnished with chinchilla sand because Robos really love sand. The left side of the cage (pics 7 and 8) is furnished with stones, a mangrove root, a twig, a cork tunnel, an amphora from a deco store and a 20cm (8") wood wheel by Rodipet.
In the middle of the cage is a self made hideout made from wood and finished with child safe paint and sand (pic 9). On top of the hideout is the water bowl, a willow bridge, moss, pieces of bark and proso millet.
The right side of the cage (pic 11) contains a lot of bedding, pieces of bark, moss, play food, twigs and a willow bridge. Hamster Lily really enjoys the enhanced cage and uses every inch.
