First, the layout. This OVO Dwarf kit is great for Robos, Russians, gerbils and mice. I had a mouse who loved the straight vertical tubes, but my Winter Whites didn't do vertical. So I simply rotated the T-connectors so they were at an incline (takes double the length of tubes to reach the same height) and all was well. If your little ones don't like climbs at all it's really easy to make it all level.
If you want to expand your habitat it is much more cost-efficient to purchase new kits like this one, rather than buying tube parts individually. Unless you really need only one or two specific parts for your layout. Not only will buying new kits give you an assortment of tubes and connectors, but you'll also have some additional chambers to add in.
Remember, it's the chambers that really matter because that's where your creatures will be doing all of their activities. Tunnels are only for getting from one place to another. Also note that the tunnels are not ventilated so plan your layout with chambers on the ends and throughout to help promote airflow. If you have more than one critter in an enclosure you'll want to plan your layout as a closed loop so everything has two access paths.
The connectors and rings are all universal within this brand and I am very impressed at the quality of design and materials. It's so simple and effective, just plug two things into a ring and twist. Sturdy plastic and rubber allows them to hold quite a bit of weight and I've done some tunnels and even a water bottle or two extended outwards from a cage without even the slightest hint of droopage. In my photo there is a book and a pill bottle acting as a support for a tube leading up to a lookout, but it really wasn't even necessary. It was just for peace of mind while learning to trust the sturdy construction of the attachment rings.
The home included in this kit is large and has many great features like a good running wheel, steps leading up to a built-in food or bath dish, and a cubbyhole home that is large enough for two dwarves (and even my Golden Syrian fits in there). These three features are easily removable, giving you space to place your own shelter or wheel if you wanted.
The water bottle worked fine, the transport is perfect for trips to the pet store or vet, and the little den makes a great piece to use instead of a window end-cap.
So with all these good things to say, why do I only give this 4 stars instead of 5? Well, my complaints are very minor, but there are several of them.
First, if you use the built-in food dish atop the steps for food, there are two problems. The steps are tall and smooth without footholds, and my dwarves sometimes took multiple attempts to try and get up there. A Syrian has no problem, but it can sometimes be a real chore for wee ones. Still, nothing can topple determination and it's still very much usable in the end.
....it just isn't easy. The home uses a dome ceiling that can open from both the front and the back. The food tray is located in the back, and the back of the dome does not open enough for you to easily change out the food or sand. I can barely fit my hand in there and end up spilling food all over the steps (which my hamsters don't mind) while trying to change it. I could easily open the front of the dome enough though, except the wheel is in the way of clear access to the food dish and I worry that continuous removal and re-insertion of the running wheel will wear down the plastic piece that connects it to the base.
Another problem I saw was in the quality control department. I purchased a few of these and out of the three kits, I received one completely broken ring, one partially defective one, and the cap on one of the water bottles had accidentally been glued so I had to use vice grips to remove it. If I didn't know any better I would have thought the cap wasn't supposed to be removed.
Lastly, and I don't know why, but I feel like this kit should have also come with the dwarf version of their 5-way connector. Like I said, these are all petty issues and combined are barely worth subtracting one star. In my opinion this is the greatest modular/tubular habitat you can find on the market for dwarf hamsters, mice, and gerbils. It is very well-made and all so easy to take apart and clean (the tubes can all come apart in halves for washing).
It's very much a good deal for the price too!
Better tunnels for smaller hamsters.
Great Hiding Spots
Attractive Water Bottle
Connects with Crittertrail
It looks like a space cage
Easy to clean
Portable to go spot that you can un-connect
Closed Bottom that helps bedding stay in & helps control odor (I clean weekly)
I did leave the back opening open one time on accident, make sure you check all 4 doors.
The wheel isn't completely soundless, but it isn't bad. I just use the wheel in my other cage.
I paired this with my hamster's current cage from Crittertail, they fit well together. Based on previous reviews, I taped both sides of the holes on the hamster wheel because they are big and my dwarf hamster would get her feet stuck. The stairs leading up to the food tray is much too big for her to climb. She's able to fit the tubes and climb up & down but it takes a bit of effort with the weird bubbling effect on the tubes, they should have rims all around. I don't utilize the water container as it is not leak proof.
There were random brown stains all over the pieces, so unsure what that was.
Overall, it makes for great extra space for my hamster to explore and burn off more energy.
The connection tubes, elbows, and tees are all reduced in inside diameter and are therefore best suited to dwarf hamsters.
Assembly can be daunting if this is your first Habitrail system, so I've put together a demonstration video showcasing the components and how they go together.
The central pod is basically the same size as other Habitrail rounded systems/habitats, including the exercise wheel which attaches the same and is the same 7+ inch diameter as in other Habitrail Habitats.
The connection rings connect securely and cannot be chewed by the occupants.
It's marked "escape proof" and I can believe that as there are no bars to spread and the openings do clasp securely, so Mom and Dad don't have to worry about those escapes.
The tubes are extremely well ventilated as is the system while preventing those problematic drafts.
The exercise wheel support is also the food dish and hide for the hamsters or mice. It is opaque and creates a nice dark space for a greater sense of security.
Disassembly and cleaning are very easy as you can place your pet in the carrier pod while replacing bedding, food, and rinsing out the tubes and pods.
Great system for a child under adult supervision. In fact, it's also a great opportunity for you elementary school age child to learn to follow instructions and assemble a system with many parts.
I highly recommend this cage/habitat as part of your dwarf hamster, or mouse's cage system. Well designed, secure, pleasant to look at.
