    very small

    By leaderofthepack on May 25, 2020

    I bought this for my daughters guinea pigs and when it arrived it says mouse on the bottle. The bottle itself is very small and only holds about a days worth of water which is fine except guinea pigs can drag this whole thing around and knock it over. Lucky for us our cavies live in a home made wooden I bought this for my daughters guinea pigs and when it arrived it says mouse on the bottle. The bottle itself is very small and only holds about a days worth of water which is fine except guinea pigs can drag this whole thing around and knock it over. Lucky for us our cavies live in a home made wooden enclosure so we just added a screw under the ceramic to keep the girls from taking it or knocking it over but I know not all cavy owners will have that option. I really wish this was listed a a size for a mouse and had some bigger ones available for cavies. However, we have had no issue with it leaking and I do love the design since our enclosure is made of wood and plexiglass windows we don't have a lot of options for hanging things so the design works perfectly. … more

    By on

    Ok part my fault too because I don’t know measurements.... but does say guniea pigs in bottom description. Wasn’t a total loss thought I hooked them in 2 different areas of cage just couldn’t use stand. They are sooo tiny I have to fill a few times. They do still have 1 big water bottle too

    Do NOT use the water bottles that come with these.

    By on

    I have two mice, Tundra (female) and Taiga (male). Each of them has their own 20 gallon aquarium tank, so I thought this would make more sense than the hanging water bottles I had before - if only to make more room for more climbing toys. This was a pack of two, and every review seemed to say it wasn't enough for anything bigger than a mouse. I have mice. Perfect, right? Well, this past Saturday, I cleaned and renovated their tanks and replaced their water bottles with these ones. Since the top of the bottle isn't clear, I assumed the water level was decreasing, but I just couldn't see it. I was watching them though - and I did see them "drinking" from the bottles, so I cautiously assumed they I have two mice, Tundra (female) and Taiga (male).

I was watching them though - and I did see them "drinking" from the bottles, so I cautiously assumed they were getting water. I even pulled out the water bottles and shook them to see if water came out, and it did, so I thought I was just being overly paranoid. It's now Monday, or night three of them using these. I just came home from work. Taiga was perched on top of his nest. Usually he sees me and comes up to the glass to greet me. But he was perfectly still and his eyes were glazed over. For a moment I panicked, thinking he was dead, but I saw his chest shallowly moving up and down. This was the first and only potential cause I could think of, so I got his old water bottle, filled it up, and held it near his mouth - he immediately latched onto it and started drinking like he hadn't in days...and honestly, I don't think he had. Tundra wasn't in such bad shape, but she doesn't drink as much as he does. I put both their water bottles back 20 minutes ago and they've both been drinking more than I've ever seen them drink in that short of a time period. Tundra's at the water bottle as we speak. These are a great idea in theory. If you can find better water bottles that fit...you should. My mice can't get water out of the ones that come with these. Taiga is back to being a happy active boy. … more

    Bottles not specifically made for ceramic hut

    By on

    The bottles aren't made for the hut so they don't fit well and are super cheap, will be finding different bottles that fit better. The huts could be better especially with a solid bottom but are okay if not set on bedding. The cheap cloth is the best part.

    Two years and going strong

    By on

    I use this product continuously for over two years. First note that this bottle is too small and the mouth piece too low to the ground for anything larger than a mouse. It might work for small Chinese dwarf hamsters, but I’ve no personal experience. I love this product because I use an aquarium for my mice. I cannot hang anything easily in my setup, so I needed something that could stand inside the tank. I found this product perfect for my situation. It holds enough water for four mice in temperate weather for about two to three days. I can easily clean it out with a toothbrush and vinegar when the bottle starts to get cloudy. My mice like to explore the hidey hole beneath every so often with I use this product continuously for over two years.

At first I was frustrated, because my mice would occasionally tip it over by digging the bedding underneath, making it unbalanced and fall over. If it falls the gravity ball would move, and the bottle would start leaking. The solution was simple, I now place it level on the actual cage floor so the mice cannot unbalance it. I have been nothing but satisfied with this product, and I would buy it again (but maybe two next time). I’ve added a picture of the product and one of my pet mice for scale. … more

    Bottles Do Not Work

    By on

    I like the concept however the water does not come out unless the bottle is shaken hard. My pets cannot lick and release the water. Had to remove the cap and hold the bottle for the babies to drink directly from the bottle opening.

    Poor Choice

    By on

    I had hoped that these would be a helpful addition for my mice, but both water bottles included jammed up constantly making it difficult for my pets to drink. They also sit way too low in any sort of bedding, making them leak whenever your pet successfully gets any water. I would not recommend these.

    too difficult for my hamsters to drink

    By on

    I got them these because i thought it would be great and look good in the cage but little did i know they couldn’t get water whenever they wanted it. I have to squeeze the bottle and help them drink every morning and night because it never works if they try it alone. and i have a full time job so i try to make them drink as much as they possibly can so it’ll last then through the day. i see that some people don’t have issues with that but with mine it does.
