Actually, I currently have her in a 20 gallon aquarium, but she's constantly
trying to climb - I thought if I bought her one of those "extendable"
houses, I could make it a lot more fun for her by giving her a lot more
places to go and climb and run through. I've now looked at a lot of
different options, and they seem so tiny in length compared to the aquarium.
I'm going to try to cut into the screen and add some attachments up there -
but I worry that doing that will weaken the screen and allow her to "break
out". We'll see what happens....I'm so glad everyone responded with great
advice and opinions....
