Water Bottle for a 20-gallon tank?

We moved the gerbils to a bigger tank but now they're water bottle won't fit. I bought one of the glass ones today but if I hang it low the crazy one jumps on it and knocks it out. I'm leaving town on Monday for 3 weeks - I doubt Lox will have time to stand here every day and let them drink water - any suggestions on a sturdy water bottle that's long?

I use this type of water holder... maybe you can find one that fits your tank?

I'm confused - the new tank is glass or the water bottle is glass?

What about using some heavy duty velcro. Put it vertically in the bottle and attach it to the tank. Heavy duty strength should hold the weight of the water and bottle.

Padfoot, that link does not work. Just post the photo.

I use Quick Quench bottles. Be sure you regularly refill it as four can drain it faster than you might think.

Both the tank and the bottle are glass. Racer is jumping up on the bottle and knocking it out of the holder and then jumping up on the holder to try and get out. I have one of those metal holders but can't figure out how to secure it in the tank. Maybe mine is just too small?

The same I posted? Odd, cause in my tanks, bend the metal tab around the tank corner, and it stays locked in with the lid... and the bottle stays securely there, never has fallen.. maybe it is indeed too small.

The link - I don't get it. Anyway, there it was.

The only problem I had with Quick Quench bottles is sometimes the wire that holds it has to be replaced.
