pygmy mice

i normally wouldn't post a thread like this, but i am just so curious about these little guys!

i was interested to see if anyone owns pygmy mice? has friends with pygmy mice?

a few specific things that i'm wondering about:

-how easy it is to get them. i've read that they're becoming more rare as pets and they're hard to find. (wouldn't surprise me, because just finding info about them is quite the challenge!)

-how likely they are to become violent with each other when housed together.

-how to house them. most things i've read recommend a 10 gal aquarium but that seems a bit small to me, even if the mice are tiny. i would love to give them a really big enclosure, especially because they are so little and it will seem huge to them! the only thing i can think of is a big aquarium, but are there other possibilities?

i can't even get them anytime soon, i'll have to wait until i live on my own, but thinking about it just makes me so excited! even if you can't answer these questions, i'd love some links to good websites or... really anything of use! thanks a ton.

I used to work at a petstore that had its own breeding colony of pygmy mice. THEY ARE VERY SMALL AND FRAGILE! They are very hard to handle, and it is hard to sex them from their size. I recoment a ten gallon tank so there is no chance of escape and many hiding places.
