Default wheel recommendations for a russian hamster

I'd like to replace Snowball's wheel but not sure what type or size to get. He's a small russian hamster (30g) so about the size of a mouse. Quiet would be good. Also what size do you think is best. I'm thinking 6.5 in. Is smaller too small?

Default Re: wheel recommendations for a russian hamster

An 8inch wheel is best for all dwarfs. All of my hamsters use the Trixie wooden wheels from Zooplus, with my 265g Syrian getting the 11-12inch/28cm one, and all my dwarfs past and present (ranging from 21g to 70g, current robo was 25g when I last weighed her) have used the 8inch/21cm wheel.

You can check out the posts I made a while back about various pros/cons for certain wheels. The 'karlie wonderland wheel' I talk about there is the Trixie wheel I recommend/link above. It got rebranded a while back, and given a nice makeover (used to have wooden rungs on the wood surface; now is a flat cork surface).

Thanks for those links everybody.I'll investigate them further. Jeir your 265g hamster was a big boy/girl! I thought my Hammy was a big girl at 190g.
