Tube compatibility for a certain cage
Posted 02 December 2008 - 08:46 PM
I was wondering if anyone on the forum might know which tubes, if any, would be compatible with it. I have seen extension kits for the cage on eBay, but they would serve more purpose if they could work together with other cages.
Also, if I do end up with this cage, I think it might be nice to join my hamster's current cage, a Savic Rody, to it for some extra running space. Any ideas on how to go about doing that would be appreciated - I've seen lots of tubes connected to bins and such on here, but the plastic on the Savic Rody is probably stronger/harder than a bin cage.
Thanks in advance.

I think CT, SAM, and so on will be compatible with it. It seems pretty similar to an Imac cage. Maybe you can ask the people with extension kits on eBay?

Here's what they look like:
They come in all different sizes (& shapes). I love 'em!

I came across this picture on the "Proud of your hamsters cage" thread, from someone called Shivanitras (I hope they won't mind me using the picture):
The tubes connecting the cage to the tank aren't the same ones that the cage originally comes with (and you can see that the end of the tubing is tilting into the cage a little bit). If anyone happens to recognise the type of tube being used please let me know!

I personally have a random hamster cage that is no longer made (I can't even find the company info), but it hooks up perfectly to PennPlax, CT, SAM, and Habitrail cages. And SAM and CT tubes can be used interchangeably.

Rhapsody - That's a very interesting point. The rings connecting the Crittertrail tubes in the picture look smaller than the ones connecting the cage tubes though (and that seems likely because the Crittertrail tube isn't secure in the side of the cage). However, I spotted that the tube inside the tank pictured isn't a Crittertrail one (?) it looks smooth like the tubes that come with the cage, and it seems to be attached to the Crittertrail tubes at the top. I guess I can't know for sure unless someone with the cage replies. Thanks for your thoughts.
