Why not get a regular wire cage? Tanks don't have good ventilation at all.

We used to have of them, but personallly, we don't have a really good review for them....

PROS
1.)rats like the different levels.

CONS
1.) they have sharp edges.
2.) the pee dribbles down it sometimes and causes a bad smell.
3.) it is hard to get out your rat if they are at the way bottom.

That are just my thoughts! :)

I'd just ditch the tank altogether and put the money for the topper towards a wire cage... a 10 gallon doesn't offer much room, even with a topper.

Tanks are a big "No-No" in the world of ratties. Not enough ventilation can lead to URI's, which will end up costing you money at a vet's office. Even with a tank topper, there is just not enough air circulation to have a happy rattie.

If money is an issue (and that is why you are looking to add on to your tank), you should check your local Craigslist for a second hand cage. You can find some good stuff off of there, just check in the "pets" section or do a search for "cage".

You can also look on Ebay.
