I`ve looked at tables for aquarium, the aquarium is 125 cm, so the table is around 200 dollars I believe. It is also very tall, so barney or duna would be easier. But I do use long time to decide

No rush - they can be difficult decisions and you have to live with them. Some people used to get the Ikea Lack Coffee table for a tank etc as a stand. It's only 40. It's only 118cm long so there would be a slight overhang each side but not that much. It is very deep though and might take up too much space. Comes in black, white, oak or light oak.

Or a kallax unit on it's side - if you have room - it's 147cm so longer than the tank - you might have some overhang depthwise but should be fine - I have my plaza cage on the smaller one. you can get double height storage or single height storage. Single height would make it easier to access the top of the tank and is cheaper 29 v 44. I put a hemp mat on top of mine under the cage, so it doesn't slide around as the top is smooth and slidey. But then a tank is heavier than a cage.

Kallax and lack does take 20 kg each, I`m afraid the aquarium would make the table fall apart Or I just buy the barney cage and shelfs

If you want it slightly higher than the single height but not as tall as the double height you can get the single height version with legs - but that costs about 60

Ah ok - how much weight does the kallax take? I know people used to put Detolfs on top of those.

Extra shelves for the barney wouldn't solve the height/fall risk issue for a dwarf hamster - it would need to be a full level - which is a bit of diy.

Your best option would be the Elmo cage which is basically a much lower height Barney cage! No diy - it's 35cm high and perfect for a dwarf hamster. But it's only available in Germany - and they won't ship to the Uk now - maybe they would ship to Norway?

They don't call it the Elmo any more

PETGARD XXL Mouse and Hamster Cage : Amazon.de: Pet Supplies

See if they ship to Norway? They might do as you're in the EU. If Amazon don't you could check on Petgard's website.

I did look at the lack and kallax for the terrarie, but they does take 20 kg max, so I found table in an another store there takes 100 kg. The aquarium is 60 cm tall I think.

I just noticed Amazon uk are currently charging 188 for the maxi duna! Unbelievable rip off! It used to be 80. It was bad enough when it went up to 100.

The kallax takes max 26 kg.
Here in norway the duna does cost around 140, 1400 nok. Okay, maybe I just have to go for duna, or I have to buy a lot of these : Shelter and Platform

That doesn't do it unfortunately. If a hamster gets to the roof and falls they can bounce off shelf edges on the way down and injure themselves or fall between the gaps. To make it completely fall proof with shelves ends up being very expensive and then very inaccessible to get at the hamster as well - people used to try it with the tall mamble and it worked out cheaper buying a different cage (and was never that satisfactory).

It's either deeper bedding or a full level. So yes the maxi duna would be better if you can get it for a decent price.

Did you check out the Elmo though? It's perfect. Would Amazon.de ship to Norway?

No idea. Some German manufacturer I think.
