Thanks for your reply. I did go ahead and order the larger tubs. The smaller ones seemed like they would be too small for four adult mice babies. I don't want to end up with dead mice because I overcrowded them.

For water, I purchased 12 small rodent drinking valves, a 3 gallon reservoir, tubing and hardware to plumb a valve to each cage. My only unresolved issue at this point is how to plumb the valve through the hardware cloth in each cage so that it doesn't interfere with the free movement of the tub if I want to completely remove it from the rack for cleaning. I suppose that I can leave enough play in the valve supply line so that I can just pull it up through the hardware cloth if necessary. I've also considered adding a 1/2" spacer between the hardware cloth and the rails supporting the tubs, but that complicates the construction quite a bit. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Steve
