10 inch walls should be fine.

I have a question now lol. Are sterility bins bad for circulation because the sides are pretty high up? Higher then a C&C cage.

Thank you, Larry T! I'm ordering the coroplast tomorrow and was nervous since no one was really answering me. In your opinion, if I do the coroplast 10" up, instead of the full 14", should I be concerned about escapes if I don't use a lid? The tallest thing in her cage will be your CSBW. Everything is is no taller than 3 inches.

CanadienHedgie, my hog is in a sterilite right now - I drilled 2 rows of pen-tip-sized holes, at 7" and 9" up from the bottom, and use wire closet shelving for the lid - my hedgie is getting along just fine. Air flow is the main concern with sterilites, so if you're going to use that for a set-up, it doesn't hurt to go overboard with the ventilation holes (as long as they're high enough to keep hedgie's nails from getting caught).

Do you have a link to this? I searched their website for an hour and couldn't find anything, and I figure it will be cheaper to buy through Wal-mart when I do my 2nd C&C cage.

I just got mine at my local target today. It was $19.99 but my daughter really wanted black and $19.99 is the best price I have found for the black on-line or in stores. They did not have any white there, just silver and black so I can not compare prices!

Here is the Walmart link for the white:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Whitmor-White ... ed/5005200

And here is the Walmart link for the black:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Whitmor-Black ... gMethod=rr

I am unable to find plexiglass or acarylic locally does not cost an arm and a leg and there is NO coroplast locally at all. Does anybody have a good link?

I already have the cubes, I was just curious where to find them online. My local Wal-marts don't have the cubes, so I had to go to Target.

Where are you located, Moorea? If you give us a general area, I bet we could help you find a place. I live in the boonies, too (Middle-of-Nowhere, WI) and it took some searching, but I found a place closer than an hour and a half away, which is what I originally thought I'd have to travel to get the coroplast.

You also might get more responses if you start your own thread.

Drill some small holes into the bin and it will be fine.

This is a C&C set, the coroplast floors and walls are covered with fleece, and the walls about 6 inches high.

I said "awe" out loud when he/she sniffed the camera, so cute
