Switching to an aquarium...a few questions

My daughters Teddy Bear Syrian has finally out grown her Critter Trail one so we are planning to move her to a 10gal aquarium.
By looking at the picture of the Wodent Wheel, I'm guessing she'll probably need the medium sized one...but wanted to double check with you guys that actually have them. LoL..she's outgrown enough stuff!
Plus any suggestions that would give her more play space than just the floor of the aquarium? I'm worried that it may not be enough room for her between the freestanding wheel, food bowl and a couple of toys.....
Thanks so much for the help in advance!!

The medium sized Wodent Wheel is 11 inches. How tall is a 10 gallon? I think if it fitted it would take up a lot of the room.

You can buy tank toppers. Maybe if you added one of them to the top of the tank, she would have more room and the wheel would fit!

A ten gallon tank is too small for a Syrian hamster.

A fifteen gallon would be a MINIMUM size.

A tank topper in a ten gallon makes no difference to a Syrian as they work best for animals that are very proficient at climbing such as mice..
