Question Best bin cage and tips on buying?

I have decided to finally separate my robos, as I am worried for their health and happiness if they continue fighting. I probably should have realised separating would be best earlier, but better late that never! After all, their health and happiness is and has to be my priority. I would've put one of them in their old cage, but it is far too small and wouldn't be fair, so I've decided to go for one of the cheapest options: a bin cage. I know this requires minimum diy, is good quality and a very good price. For those of you with bin cages, which ones would you recommend and do you have any tips on buying and keeping bin cages?

Thanks, Jellybaby24 xx

I used to the the largest ikea samara bin it's about 10 and it's huge (80x50) I've not seen another bin this size also with a robot you wound need a lid if you didn't want one as the sides are really high

I think there are some tutorials on making bin cages. I believe you'd need a hot knife to cut out front and top panels and then some mesh and cable ties and some kind of tool to make holes for the cable ties. Although some people use masking tape on the outside of the bin to hold the mesh on instead I think.

Or you could get a Duna Multy for 33 - it's a similar size - not so tall, but no diy
