i ended up using a few of my Pom juice bottles from my collection. after i drink the juice i just rinse them not actually wash them so a good rinse with water, vinegar and a tinsy bit of beach should do it. and there glass and perfectly cylindrical so it makes a nice tunnel. pixie got introduced into the nice new cycled tank today, and so far really likes his section. Matti still has a bit longer in the quarantine tank,

My strawberry is a hamster bed did you use the plastic ones? could never get them to sink, even putting sand in the bottom to weigh them down

Yeah, plastic 1s. I remember using gravel in the fish tank + I did put a layer on the floor of the hammy house, but from what I remember, that was an asthetic thing rther than to get it to sink / stay in place. I could be wrong though, since it was several years ago

I have a cave in my current tank, and a tall volcanoey type thing. I think they're both too small but the axies insist on getting in them still! I panic about twice a week when I can't see my girl, but she hides in the top most part of the volcano which is by far the thinnest part and means she pretty much is on her hind legs to get in.

I will put pics up when I move them to their bigger tank but I have nightmares about them being stuck. In reality there is enough space on the inside, but the entrance looks so small!

In the new tank I'm going to use different woods to make hides, and loads of various plants.
