The Pawhut cage is good but I've seen on Facebook a few people talking about how the wood is considered "soft" and it seems to be a trend that female Syrian's like chewing their way out of it. That being said, many people really like this particular Pawhut cage. I wouldn't recommend using any of the levels, and definitely filling the bedding higher than the tray level.
I never knew that about the deltof, I always see people recommending it for both Syrians and robos, thanks for letting me know

In my eyes another problem is the width. As Syrians can get large, the really small width has been known to stress them out as within in few steps theyíre at the other side. Itís a bit of a small chute. Iíd definitely try the pawhut. Or try the detolf, but with the understanding that they could get stressed and need an upgrade when they get older and a little bigger. If your syrian is happy in a detolf that is great, but yeah, as it stands they are pretty perfect for dwarfs instead.
Thanks for the info, think I might give it a pass on the deltof

Have you thought of other ikea hacks, komplement, linnmon, pax or platsa?
I've only seen a linnmon, I'll check out the others, thanks!

I think the Detolf is ok for a Syrian but you can make a raised lid as well. Plenty of syrians been happy in them. You're limited on wheels that fits unless you have a raised lid.
