What mesh is suitable for bin cages? I'm thinking of making a bin cage add on for Luna as a digging tank (instead of buying the Ferplast Novy), I need to price up the materials but I have no idea what mesh is suitable and where to buy it from. I'd prefer to buy online :) If anyone could offer some advice I'd really appreciate it :)

the mesh i used for meshing mimii's zoozone is from Wickes i think, they have different sized mesh tho ^_^

I would use slightly bigger mesh as you could put a water bottle through and interact with her :)

Thanks for the links!!

I have to admit I dont understand the sizes :oops: I'll have to go in I think so I can have a proper look, we have a B&Q down the road so I could always have a wander down there tomorrow.

lol :P 1cm mesh would be ideal for syrians but where i went it was more expensive:P so mimi just has 1.3 which she cant escape out of anyway :D
the 6mm is mostly for dwarfs :) its very small!

the mesh I've used for my tank topper is 2.5cm x 1cm and my syrian can't get through that, if it's for a dwarf though, would be way too big
