You can get away with a 10gal tank if you chuck a tank topper ontop of it, it will give them some more floor room to play with. You can usually find tank toppers fairly cheaply, try looking on Craigslist, Freecycle and ebay. Or if you want you can buy them new from quite a few places.

I tried this with my bin cage... after I found a cardboard sheet that had some holes in it and I almost died the first time DiNozzo foudn one of the holes and decided to go through it.... Cause I thought it was big enough for them I didn't do any extra cutting.
DiNozzo ended up going down to his hips and had to wiggle the rest of the way to get through it... the opened it up a bit more before they went through it again.

thats a good idea boz. im gonna have to try it in a 20 gallon split. ill post how that goes in the appropriate place tho. im always finding good ideas on here but also feel like a bad gerbby parent, both of mine are in critter trails. didnt realize those were frowned on so much.
Add a craft store birdhouse about 4" x 4" square as a nest box. Make sure one side of the birdhouse opens up, so you can clean it out when necessary. The gerbils will chew the door wide enough to get inside.
Also a branch or root (washed, boiled a few minutes & dried) for acrobatics.

I am setting up housing for gerbils. I have a 30 gallon aquarium, and I am buying a screen cover. Do I need to secure the screen cover or can I just set it on top? If I need to secure it, can anyone suggest how, because I've been reading that people are not happy with the screen clips that go with my Zilla screen cover.
