And that brings up a question. We have an empty 75 gallon aquarium. We had 2 foot long Oscars in there (until I somehow killed them ) & then had Ally the Alligator, but he/she got released in Bayou Manchac once he/she was old enough & big enough. I'm wanting to get another alligator (yes I have a wildlife permit ), but my husband wants another Guinnea Pig (our last one passed of cancer). However, the petstore people told us Guinnea Pigs need a wire cage so that they have a constant flow of air for circulation. They stated that the GP would not surive in the aquarium. I'm not sure if that's really true or not (I mean, it's a HUGE aquarium & it's not like we'd put a top on it.....we'd have a friend make us a screen top if necessary. But what about fancy rats? Would a 75 gallon aquarium work for them?

ALSO never put a mammal in a tank that once housed any reptiles or fish. I can't remember exactly what the illnesses are (it's been a while) but they can stay in the corners of the tanks (you know where the glue is) no matter how much you clean the tanks, and your mammals won't make it very long.
