Indecision - April 1st 2014, 01:04 AM

So I have been thinking and with my first paycheck I either want to get a new hamster cage for Nyx or some new fishies for my fish tank.

It's not like my hamster needs a cage but the cage it is in is kind of small. If I were to get new fishies, then I would be putting my betta fish back into his old fish bowl, thus making his dwelling smaller, but I feel like a 10 gallon tank is too much just for one fish, y'know?

I don't know what to get. Any ideas on the two?

Or I could always get a new buildabear , or nothing at all even....

Help me out !!

My opinion is to get a new hamster cage first. This way your hamster will have more room to run and exercise. Then with your next paycheck you can always get new fish then. Maybe your fish is enjoying the extra room right now, who knows? It might be his "man cave" or something.

But really it's up to you!

Hi there!

I think you should get the hamster a bigger cage first. Even though hamsters are small they still like having lots of room and they're very active so make use of any extra space they have. I've always read on the internet that for hamsters and other rodent-like creatures you should always buy the biggest cage you can afford.

I also think you should leave your fish in the current tank. Even if it is a big tank and you think it's too big for just one fish, he will be enjoying having a lot of space to swim around so if you suddenly put him into a smaller bowl he could get distressed.

I hope this helped, take care

Hey.

I agree with the others. If it's a choice between getting new pets or improving the standard of living for existing ones, I know which one I'd pick. Like Cara said, a big cage for your hamster and a big tank for your fish are likely to be the best situations for them, so I'd go with that.

It's up to you though, so good luck with whatever you choose.

Like the other members have said, you could get your Hamster a cage first, so they will be more happy and have more room to exercise.
I agree with Khaleesi. in regards to your fish tank. Maybe keep your fish in the tank you currently have so it can have more space to roam around and have it's freedom.

I have decided, thanks to everyone here, to get my hamster a new cage :3 Not yet though, I'm going to save up some more money first so I can get her a really nice one.

Thanks guys!

Since you seem to have made your decision, I'm going to close this thread. PM me if you want it reopened, and have fun with your hamster!
