  4. Guinea Pig Discussion
    Do those of you with multiple piggies notice that they make alot of noise at night?

  10. Mouse & Rat Discussion
    I've decided to get a mouse and need some help. Would a 5 or 10 gallon aquarium work for just one mouse? And what kind of bedding and water bottle should I use? I know I will have to get a few hide type things for it....what is best? Do mice need a solid wheel and what size should it be...
