Here is my cage set up for Doctor Digby,
Standard 10 gallon tank, with a cage topper but I have divided the tank in two section via a 'wood shelf' with holes drilled out of it.
The little wooden birdhouse is his sand hut that he crawls into and bathes in. The bottom portion is filled with tissues and Care Fresh bedding The little blur in the right bottom corner is Doctor Digby digging away

This is Ginger and Annabelle's place- A 20 gallon long with 5-6 inches bedding on the left which is separated from the food/drink area by a short piece of cardboard with two holes in it(so they can go between sides) It's difficult to see their little underground den in the left corner- started off by a small cardboard support. You can sort of see the entrance- it seems that Annabelle is heading towards it. Day 11 and they seem to be enjoying themselves
(Soory about the glare, couldn't seem to find an angle where you wouldn't catch a bit of the fan XP And the attachment is mega huge so just ignore it)
I finished the tank topper for their 40 Gallon Breeder Tank. My two boys are spoiled and they love every inch. It's 1/4 of an inch hardware cloth. Took me 3 days and I am still not completely finished but it's secure and functional and in use. I am waiting for springs to make spring latches for both sides of the door. For now I'm using pipe cleaner wire. But that is SUPER temporary.
This had just been cleaned so it no longer looks like this.
Under the house is a Mystery Maze to entice them to burrow more. In the house we have switched them from the normal vegetable paper bedding to carefresh which you can see they had already kicked out. under the wood shavings are multiple hidey holes and wooded toys
Hello. Only my second post on here. I wasn't going to buy more gerbils until we came back from holiday but then we saw these 3 sisters in the pet shop when buying rabbit food. They didn't want to leave a lone gerbil so it was "buy two, get one free!".
Anyway, they're now in their cage. This is a 10gallon aquarium with a topper built by me. I particularly like the "lift-off lid with handle" (because I had an old cupboard handle laying around).
They chose their own names within an hour of being placed in the cage. The lightest one was the most brave and the most inquisitive, coming up to the top to see you whenever you come near, and not scared of being picked up - so she's "Nosey". The mid-grey one doesn't like being handled, and tends to nip, so she's "Nibbles". The dark grey one has so far done all the digging, so she's "Digger".
A friend at work has a 30 gallon tank with a leaky seal that I can have for a tenner, so this one will be replaced as soon as I can get round to fashioning a new top.

This is our setup for our new gerbils that will be coming home in a few weeks. It's a 25 gallon Hagen aquarium, which is 30"x12"dx16"h. I haven't added the hay yet so that it won't be stale before the gerbs get here, lol. Sorry for the glare.
