Best cage ever,
This review is from: Rotastak Pink Palace Small Animal Housing (Misc.)
Ignore all the people that can't be bothered to put a cage together. Yes it's "a bit fiddly" to put the tubes together, but once they're together, you never have to take them apart ever again, so get over it! Coming from someone who has owned and bred hamsters for 15 years and still has 2 of them and recently purchased this cage (the pink version of the other Rotastak cage) I can tell you bar none that this is the best cage ever. It iIS big enough for a syrian, and the best part is you can save up for a few months and then buy more parts for it, assemble it how you like, get outer wheel attachments etc. You can build it differently, it's like the hamster gets a new cage every time you clear it out if you want. If the little buggers wee in the tubes, it doesn't take 5 mins to spray hamster-friendly disinfectant on them and rinse with the shower hose, leave to dry while they're rampaging in their ball.
Could not recommend it more, much more fun than a boring bar cage. If they're driving you crazy nibbling on the bar bars at night you can easily detach it too. Simples!

I've been told that hamsters escape though the tubes and that it leaks. Is this true?

Hamsters only escape thru the tubes if you don't put them together properly, but they are simple to assemble, or if you aren't sensible and make a VERY long tube it will be weak in the middle and detatch as the hamster walks through it. The only thing that could possibly leak is the curved tubes with holes in them if the hammy has a pee - ours are good and don't do it - only when they were a few months old. Genuinely amazing cages, highly recommend.
