Ferplast Rataout 80 Rodent Mice Glass Tank 110 Litre Review

I’m taking a closer look at this glass tank/cage from Ferplast Rataout as I’m a big fan of glass terrariums. I love how much visibility they give you of your mice inside, along with being easy to clean, and with no bars there is absolutely no concern of any mice escaping.

This is one of the better tanks on the market. A lot of tanks are just generic tanks that can be used for a wide range of uses and pets, and not intended for use with rodents. This model has a cool little ramp leading up to another level, and some space underneath,

This means if you have two or more mice in the tank there are some basic options for them. They can hide on the ground, use the ramp to run around, and spend time apart. Adding some extra accessories gives a complete all-round experience.

So if you’re looking for a tank as your housing option let’s take a look at the specifics of this Ferplast Rataout 80 Rodent Mice Glass Tank 110 Litre Review and see if it’s the one for you.

Specifications and Features

Ferplast Rataout 80 Rodent Mice Glass Tank 110 Litre Review

Firstly there are two sizes available, the one I’m looking at here is the larger model but you can also get a smaller one with dimensions of 59.5cm x 30.5cm x 39.5cm. This isn’t really large enough for more than one small rodent, but it’s something to be aware of.

The Ratatout is marketed as a perfect habitat to house rodents safely. Mice and rats are the perfect residents for this tank, and the glass is perfect to keep an eye and observe what they are up to.

The lid is made from a metal wire netting, so you get plenty of air circulation and a secure lid that the rodents aren’t going to figure out how to escape through. Tank are obviously heavier than wire cages, so make sure you have a safe space to keep it.

These tanks come with the following accessories:

– Steel food bowl.
– Metal Ladder.
– Drinking bottle with suction cups.

Cleaning is a breeze, the lid lifts off, the sides are obviously all glass, and there aren’t any parts that can get damaged. This is one of the key selling points about glass terrariums for me, I like how you can have complete visibility of your pets, especially if they are digging in the substrate, and you can observe their tunnels and activities.

If you’re annoyed about your pets chewing and gnawing on the metal bars of a cage, swapping to a glass tank is a way to deal with this. No more annoying gnawing noises and those sounds that may keep you awake at night.

FAQ’s

Is this tank large enough for two fancy rats?

I would lean on the side of caution and say it’s a little on the small side for two rats.

Why should I use a glass tank instead of a typical metal cage?

Glass tanks obviously do not have metal bars, which presents a few different characteristics. Bits of food and bedding can’t fall out, pets have nothing to gnaw on, and you have better visibility as the owner.

What do you clean the glass with?

Stay away from typical cleaning products as they contain chemicals. Just use warm water and a lint free cloth, a little rubbing is all it takes and it will look shiny and as good as new in a few minutes.
