Talking New tank! Thoughts?

Hi there, just got my syrian Alice on her new tank, is a 100x50x50cm. The bedding is hugro hemp and I made a corner with chinchilla sand. Most of the decor is from rodipet. She's been exploring and running on her wheel since I put her there, is a good sign right? What do you think about it?

It looks really nice!Just keep an eye out for odd repetitive behaviors,these may not set in for a few days or even a week so don't just assume because it works for a short period of time they won't show up.Things like corner digging,pacing,etc can be good indicators of poor setup and or improper cage size,so do keep that in mind Hopefully it works out really well for your hamster though!

Oh wow it looks amazing I'm sure she will love it. If you wanted any suggestions I would only suggest adding a little bit more substrate depth maybe, and maybe adding a platform or a few more things on the left side.

I'm trying this substrate I used to have corn cob so I've ordered only 2bags but the idea is to give her more depth even though she doesn't dig a lot she's more of a climber. I'm still waiting on an order from viovet for some more toys (I think I got a bit carried away )

I think it's bigger than a 40 gallon breeder tank which is about 90cm by 45cm as yours is 100cm by 50cm It's a good size and nice and deep.
