I have ordered many products from Exotic Nutrition and have been very pleased. However, I'm concerned that they're still selling the wodent wheel and leashes. Both are extremely dangerous for sugar gliders. Also, any thoughts about the Congo cage vs. Brisbane?
 Look what I found on Ebay

That site is awesome for cages but nothing else in my opinion.

I have 2 brisbanes and love them, the only thing i don't like about them is the latch. It will look like it's latched when it's not, you physically have to tug on the door to make sure.

I ordered my cage from exotic nutrition about five months ago. Within the first month it had already began leaking rust juice from the inside out, due to the acidity of the sugar glider pee. I got the peak roof cage though. If you are considering buying another cage the only cage I have been impressed with online are the hybrid bird cages www.customcages.com/hybrid-bird.html they are a little pricy though. Also consider homemade cages if you are confident in your carpentry skills. Thats what I did and I love my cage! That is just my personal Experience though.

Generally, glider people order the Brisbane, Congo or Madagascar cages from exotic nutrition. They are known to be good quality, heavy wire cages that last a long time.

The peaked roof cage... I'm not sure how heavy the wire is, I don't know anyone else that has one to see it first hand. If it's the flimsy wire like used on flight cages that would be why it rusted so quickly.

Congo vs Brisbane the brisbane can be doubled side by side, the congo can be doubled back to back.

Congo Measurements: 52 inches tall (67.5 inches tall on the stand), 32 inches wide, and 21 inches deep. Can hold 3 - 4 Gliders comfortably.

Brisbane Measurements: 36 inches tall (63 inches tall on the stand) x 33 inches wide x 22 inches deep. Can house 2 - 3 Gliders comfortably.

Congo is a hair taller but also a hair narrower, both are made with the same gauge wire, same latches, I think the difference really is just the measurements otherwise about the same cage.
