Is it this one? If so it's the same size as the Standard Ferplast Duna Multy, which I think would be a better buy and cost less as well. Plus the Duna Multy has small bar spacing so doesn't need meshing. As the Imac Bingo is classed as a guinea pig cage the bars probably would need meshing and bar spacing likely to be bigger than 1cm.

You can get the Duna Multy here - it's about 36 - it comes in various colours - I think you just get sent whatever colour is in stock.

Cage Duna Multy

It's a good size for a single dwarf hamster, and you might find it ok for a pair, but might need to be prepared to upgrade the cage later.

The RSPCA used to recommend 70cm by 40cm for a single dwarf hamster and 80cm by 50cm for a pair of dwarf hamsters. Personally I would think 80cm by 50cm is a better size to go for for a pair than the size of the Imac Bingo or Duna Multy - because as Drago says you do need two of everything - it's really important to have the best chance of them being able to stay together as a pair and not fall out or get territorial.

So two houses, two wheels, two water bottles, two food bowls and no levels or platforms in the cage. Ideally the houses have two entrances as well for a pair. And after all the things are added they do still need some floorspace. The Hamster Heaven is a good size - if you take out the platforms, and take off the penthouse and tubes (the cage comes with caps to block of the tubes). Zooplus sell it for a good price.

Savic Hamster Heaven Metro Cage | Great deals at zooplus!

If you really wanted a tank style cage though, there isn't a size between the standard duna multy (71cm by 46cm) and the maxi duna multy (99cm by 51cm).

Cage Maxi Duna Multy

That is a popular cage for a pair of dwarf hamsters though and is also suitable for a Syrian or a single dwarf hamster in the future - but it's a bit more expensive - it tends to work out cheaper on Amazon as Porton charge quite a bit for delivery.

Having said that, if you set it up well, the standard duna multy should be fine - but if you had large houses and two wheels etc, you might find it not big enough. So providing the contents work with the size it should be ok. And bearing in mind that it is common for a pair of dwarf hamsters to start fighting and needing separated, and then you need another cage, so you would need another cage (or bin) handy just in case you need to separate them urgently.

I will have to meaaure the space. I have the savic hamster heaven already so i might use that. They are in a smaller temporary cage at the moment because there only 5 weeks old and are soo smallx

That might save some cash I believe the 1cm bar spacing is ok for dwarf hammies, unless they are robos or chinese.
