Uh-oh! Hammy fever! Hahahaha

I don't know about the corncob, I tried it with the gerbils, but I don't like it... I thought you used 2 different beddings (due to allergies)... I would think that you will find it a bit stinkier than gerbies... try to get a female!

I've used corncob bedding with other animals. I found that it has a tendency to mold quickly when wet.

A leaky water bottle can cause mold to form overnight. Or unsuspected moisture under a bowl..

It was unhealthy, unsanitary, and a total pain in the butt.

I've been useing Corn Cob since about March or so.
I started useing it in all my tanks a few month ago, all becuase buying 3 different types of bedding get's way to pricey when I can buy one everyone can use.
I have 5 tanks, two tanks have allergies to Aspen, and one has allergice to Carefresh (very strange).
I'm not REAL happy with the Corn Cob, but I haven't any real complaints with it, other then they can't burrow in it.
