Alright, I have been pondering this for a long time, and have finally decided to really do some good research. I have previously owned rats and gerbils, but never mice. I have always wanted to though. Before I make that commitment though, I need to ask a few questions to see if I would even be able to provide a good mouse home!
I have a 20 gallon, vertical aquarium. It looks similar to this..
If I somehow added things to create multiple levels within the aquarium, would this be suitable for a pair of female mice? How could I create multiple levels?
How can I estimate the age of a mouse that I look at for purchasing?
What is the best kind of smell-absorbing bedding? The tank would be in my room, so I would want it to be as smell free as possible. Of course, I would clean it frequently, but in between cleanings.
How often should you clean a mouse cage?
Is it easy to get mice used to being gently handled?
What are some of the downsides of owning mice?
Approximately how much would it cost to care for two mice each month?
I'm sure I'll come up with a million more questions, but that's all for now!
