OK-- I'm looking at all these different sites and plans for building rat breeder and grow out racks.
I am only seeing people using Van Ness cat litter pans and Mortar mix tubs from Lowes/Homedepot.

I'm wondering why?

I'm measuring them...
Mortar tub ----- 26x24x6
Sterilite tub ---20x14x6
10 Gallon tank---20x10x13

Sooo--- They are all close to the same size-- the mortar tub is bigger but solid black- they can't see out (is that a factor- should they not see out? not sure why I care?)
The sterilite tubs are bigger than the 10 gallon tanks are smaller than the 10 gallon tanks they are in now... so for space that would be better...

The Van Ness litter pans I don't have a measurement for but it would only be for holding one mom and her litter until they are weaned.

I'm thinking the litter pans plastic is cheap and easily chewed but they are used on more than one site with no sign of problems... so the sterilite tubs plastic is thicker but is there a reason we aren't keeping them in the sterilite tubs?

help plz

Are there reasons ppl are NOT using sterilite tubs like what we use for snakes?????


Thanks!!
