Dwarf hamster cages come in all shapes and sizes but how do you know which one to buy… You don’t.
If you’re like me, a bargain hunter then you have probably considered buying a dwarf hamster cage without knowing whether it will benefit you, save you money (in the future) and if it’s easy to maintain/clean.
I am going to help you decide on the buying a dwarf hamster cage that will save you money and time.
Buying a Cage or an Aquarium?
Believe it or not, Aquariums for dwarf hamsters are better than cages.
Aquariums are glass tanks that can be used as a hamster home and provide a great 360 view and more space for your hamster to run, play and hide.
Although they are roughly the same price but sometimes more they will benefit you greatly with time & money.
The price for an aquarium for all types of dwarf hamsters is around $70-85 with free delivery (you do not want to have to carry that home, it’s easier delivered) and this one meets the recommended cage size, click Here to see more reviews.
An aquarium also stops biting of the bars which saves you money in the future buying a cage without bars.
Buying a Cage for Two Dwarf Hamsters
Having more than one dwarf hamster is popular with Russian dwarf hamsters as they are one of the only species of hamster to live in a pair, under certain circumstances.
Keeping two together is still risky as they may become enemies when kept together in a cage that does not provide enough room. Paired Russian dwarf hamsters need plenty of room to avoid future fighting, territorial behaviour and possible severe injury.
It is recommended to keep two dwarf hamsters together within an aquarium that is at least 20+ gallons in size. This will provide enough space for our Top 10 accessories they LOVE.
Here is a good tank that I have and still use to this day that can hold two dwarf hamsters. It can be bought for the same price as our most recommended dwarf hamster CAGE called the Ferplast Duna.
Choosing the right environment for your hamster is very important. A spacious cage/tank will ensure a happy hamster life and will save you time, effort and money cleaning out.
Large dwarf hamster cages like the Ferplast Duna cage are great cages however they do take about 10-30 minutes to clean out, prepare and put back together. This after a couple of months becomes something you do not look forward to doing.
Aquariums are easy to clean, eliminate bar chewing and provide a safe reliable and escape proof environment.
There is a reason why pets stores use tanks and that is because they provide plenty of space, see through glass and they are easy to maintain/clean.
