i had the martin's topper for my young ones a few years back (gave it to a friend), and i found that the topper's biggest downfall is that the rats kept peeing in the corners of the first level, making the glass sides of the aquarium filthy very quickly, and the only way to clean that kind of thing up is to take the whole thing apart and wipe down the inside of the glass whenever it happens. it's rather inconvenient.

i suppose if you could get your rats litter trained then the pee thing wouldn't be an issue, but i could definitely see how that could be rather disgusting pretty quick.

you know, i've been able to litter train them for droppings, but i've never been able to stop my rats from peeing in corners.

You probably never will be able to get your rats to be litter trained for pee... its almost impossible with any rodent, I've had litter trained rabbits, guinea pigs, and rats, and never could i accomplish the whole pee in the box issue...

I think by the time u buy a cage topper then u should buy or make a totally new cage. I made a new cage out of hardware cloth and use my old aqauriums for pregnancies, qaurantines, and any other reason for them to not be able to be in the new cage. If you juss want a cage topper id suggest adding cloth (that u can throw away) in the sides and corners to kind of mask the pee on glass issue. I hope this helps all glass pee issues lol -Josh
