I thought it worth mentioning the cage at the price. I spotted it the other day while browsing I would buy this cage today myself but I already have a second hand Gabber Rex, albeit one I had to make a framed lid for!

The Duna Multi offers a nice space without being overly huge (like it`s larger cousin the Maxi). Once accessories are added, the extra floor space doesn`t seem as big anyway I find. x

P.S. Check out that websites terms and conditions about returning any broken cages or and who pays for that. Sometimes a cage price is too good to be true due to the `hidden` terms or postage costs, so do check those. x

Really thinking I'm gonna get the Multy Duna

Does this have a space for a water bottle ?
Maybe a hole in the side like the Mini Duna?

Just a suggestion. The ZooZone 1 (within your budget) is a pretty good sized tank for dwarf hamsters and it has a little slot on the front to attach the water bottle. The only thing though is that you would have to mesh the grill if your hamster has toys that hang from the top of his current cage or anything else that would enable him to climp/jump out.

Why not get the Barney cage from Zooplus, it's 49.90 and very big! You can always take the shelves out if you're concerned about the wood.

This review thread says that yes, theres a hole for the bottle on the duna multy

FluffySiberian - The duna multy and zoozone 1 are roughly the same size I think

My advice would be to not get bars!
I've found hamsters kept in a plastic tank/cage get a barred cage and chew it all the time.

I have to agree, the recommended cages tends to change so much. Duna's were fine a few years ago and now they aren't.

The smaller Zoozones were fine for syrians and now they aren't.

IMO the duna's can be fine for some dwarfs, the more active dwarfs would benefit from more space.

I prefer the Zoozones as they can be picked up second hand pretty cheap and look very similar.

I don't think this was already stated but I have 2 dwarf hamsters and they are both in 20 gallon long aquariums and they both have mesh lids. I think it is the perfect size for them, I can fit everything that is essential in plus more! They are a little on the heavier side though so if you struggle with lifting them up and down for cleaning then you need to make sure they are on a open shelf. Otherwise I absolutely love mine, spacious and they look very clean.

Zoozone 2 is a good size cage. I currently have 3 pets at home large wired cages. They are pushing on the minimum. Although they are quite roomy. I've had a nightmare and a lot of expense with cages plus had to split 2 roborovski up. So for now mine all have around a 64 X 40 inch cage with an upper level.

The Duna Multi is probably better than the Zoozone 1 as it doesn`t require the top grill meshing and it also has a clear Perspex top and not a pink or a blue one as the Zoozone`s have. The Zoozone 2 (the 100cm long Zoozone) I think has a clear lid? But it`s a huge cage for an older dwarf hamster, so the Multi is probably a nicer, adequate size.

I also agree with mouseandstrawberry about bar chewing. The tanks are a safer option. x

Yeah I agree with RH. I think Duna Multi is better for the same reasons. It is nice to have pink or baby blue cage but to have a clear Perspex is in my opinion better as it is much nicer to see your hammie properly. + It is cheaper and less labour intensive as it doesn't require meshing.

I think Duna Multi is perfect size for a single dwarf, especially elderly one!

I have Duna Multi Maxi ( for Syrian) and it is HUGE ! I could not see an elderly dwarf ham that is bit shaky on its legs trying to go around patrolling its territory around everyday such a distance. x
