i was going to make these free standing so wouldn't need any support
do you think the mice would be able to reach the food and water on top of the 9ltr tub

Well i was going to

do the same as im doing now with the bottle attached to the lid on the inside and just put the food in a bowl as normal.

I think you might have to put something in for hte younger mice to reach teh spout tho

they look good.You could always use bottles that are specially made to hang down in tanks,they don't cost any more.

Yeah I would use that if I had more mice, but I wouldn't use the auto-watering system because sometimes they can malfunction and flood the bins drowning the mice

To be honest, even though i'm majorly a feeder breeder, i don't think i could keep my mice in racks, just doesn't seem right, much prefere to keep mine in glass tanks where i can see and watch them :)

each to their own though, one mans rubbish is another mans treasure and all that :p
