    I went out and bought the rack from walmart around 18 bucks. It is a bit flimsy before its put together. but it holds my tubs pretty well. I am using 50 qt tubs with hardware cloth on the middle of the lids and I currently can hold 6-8 50 qt tubs. Depending if i want birthing tubs included on the top. Its working really well for me. the only negative is i have to take the water bottles of when i need to move the tubs. Oh and its by my bed and the rats make a lot of noise lol (yay poor college student) but thats not the racks fault. Anyways thanks for the post!

    I know this is an older post, but I just wanted to make a suggestion on the lid for anyone using these type of tubs. I always put the wire on the inside of the lid, not the outside. I think that the rats would be less likely to try and chew the lid this way. So far it has worked for me.

    Re: A Rat Colony When You Have Little Space...

    I am having issues where,my RATS aren't breeding and some people are saying it may be they need more. Heat. They are in the same room as my snakes and dogs. I have a 40 gal aquarium with my make RATS in and my females I have in 10 gallons on a per tank. When they were breeding I would keep the two in the tank until they were ready to drop them separated them to 1 mom with babies per 10 gal aquarium.I have been swapping a make out with my females every couple days and I haven't seen them mating and the moms don't seem to be getting pregnant. What would you suggest because I have 27ball pythons varying in many sizes and need Pups to med RATS to feed, and that gets quite expensive. Do you have any suggestions. They would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    My suggestion rather than bumping an 11 years old post (in which many members have not participated in years) would be to create your own thread in the appropriate forum
