Terrible quality, poor ventilation, hard to clean and too small for any animal,
This review is from: Rotastak Space Command Small Animal Housing (Misc.)
These cages are marketed as hamster cages. These cages are suitable for neither dwarf nor syrian hamsters.
A syrian hamster grows too large for the tubes, and will struggle as an adult to move in them so they will only go through them to get food and not for fun as the effort is so great. A syrian loves to climb and the RSPCA recommend a cage 75 cm long with these modules you will never get that!
A dwarf hamster, depending on species, either finds climbing difficult or cannot climb verticle tubes at all which means they will not enjoy this cage.
Both types of hamsters will not have much space to run in this cage. A glass aquarium is much more suitable for a dwarf and a big wire cage is more suitable for a syrian.
As for mice, I cant see this being perfect either.
The tubes are not very secure and are hard to clean.

I have this cage for my two mice. They love it, it's perfect. Obviously not as straight forward to clean as an average dull cage, but I'm definately glad I bought it :)

Do you have a recommendation for a good cage then?

These are perfectly adequate. The best part is that you can add to them to expand them. As for the smaller sized hamsters, Rotastack also make little ladders which go into these cages. I've kept hamsters for 40 years, and have never had any trouble with Rotastack. The only thing I would say though, is that they're unsuitable for gerbils, as their sharper claws can damage the plastic.
This Bekki2308 is leaving negative reviews on all Rotastack products, so I think she has an axe to grind.
