Home made water bottles for gerbils by Eli Wolfmayr
A common complaint from gerbils keepers is the amount of water bottles their gerbils manage to go through, Eli has solved this problem by making her own water bottles, again a simple but effective idea.
You will need:
1 glass bottle with screw lid, a rubber stopper, a drinking spout (one from an old water bottle is ok to use) and some silicone.
Firstly, drill a small hole in the lid of the jar, just large enough to take the drinking spout.
Use the silicone to fix the rubber stopper to the inside of the lid, making sure the hole through the stopper and the hole in the lid match up. (Allow the silicone to dry and cure for a couple of days)
Push the drinking spout through the hole in the lid and into the rubber stopper.
Fill the bottle with water, screw the lid back on and hang in the tank !
These bottles really are indestructable.
