Question Help! I want to add on to my Desert Empire cage!

I bought a "Desert Empire" cage a couple years
back to house a pair of micies.Well,you can "add on" to the cage
to make it bigger.That's what I want to do.I cannot find any other desert empire cages or add on accesories.I don't know the site for the cages now either.I think it was Habitrail.I could be wrong as I never saw any of the cages on the site.Well,I was wondering if someone would know what cages & accesories are compatable? I want to build a huge habitat for the micies I have now.Plus I want more mice in the future,so I want a really big habitat! Thanks for all help

Is that in the same series as the safari ones? I have a safari one and it is by Habitrail.If it is the same series,maybe the parts are compatable.Try E-bay.

I'm pretty positive all habitrail parts are compatible. I also think you can use crittertrail parts

I agree. You should be able to use both Habitrail and Crittertrail.

Many SAM accesories would fit too.

I'm not sure if SAM parts fit, I think they're too small. I know one of them isn't compatible with the others. I'm sure if you get something that does't fit, you can take them back. petstores do have a return policy. I took back a cage topper a few months ago because my meeses could fit through the bars (and they were only like 1/4 inch!!)

Check yard sales and garage sales. My mom found a huge box of tubes that she bought for $1 at a yard sale. I had enough to make a little mousey kingdom.

Also a box of tubes can go a long way.

DON'T GET CRITTERTRAIL PARTS!!! They're flimsy and really hard take apart. Also, I'm trying to get people to "boycott" them because of our little "Mouse Escapade" episodes.
