Default Is it too small?

Hi guys💖. So I'm planning on building a new cage for my hedgehog and I was just wanted to ask if the size I'm planning on is big enough. He is a 2 1/2 year old active male who loves running around his cage. He runs about a lot. All night actually. Anyway so the dimensions are 20'' by 50'' and then another level on top of that which is about 650 sq.ft and then the whole cage is 36'' tall. I need to decide on a model and I like this one.
Let me know please! 💞

Can you clarify the top level? 650 sq ft is the size of a small apartment...
The size of the lower level (~7 sq ft) is okay. My girl’s house is 8 sq ft, which is generally what most people will consider the new ‘minimum’. Also, there’s a good chance he won’t use the top level as hedgehogs aren’t climbing animals. Some do, so it’s not a bad idea if you build a safe ramp, but I wouldn’t count it as part of the “size” of his house. If you can build the lower level about a foot or more bigger, that’d be my recommendation!
