Default Re: Water bowl or water bottle

I have only used bottles for all our hamsters. I did try a dish for our elderly syrian at one time when worried he might not cope with a bottle but he just ignored it.

Most hamsters will use a bottle. But with a tank you're limited to fastening it to the glass (some people use industrial strength velcro which is supposed to work well) or using/making a bottle stand - and they can be a fiddle if they get knocked over or won't stand up on top of deep bedding well. I'd go with a bottle and velcro or the Ferplast sippy. My favourite bottles for syrians is the 75ml Ferplast Drinky.
