Ok I've purchased 7 waters bottles, on of which did not leak but it's HUGE! So i'd like to get one that's a bit more glider friendly. Does anyone have a suggestion on what one to get?

Thanks in advance.

Who makes the tall water silos? Lixit?

I have the big thing from super pet, it's a top fill one... it's just HUGE and my boys don't drink from a third of the bottle i'd rather get a couple little ones to place around the cage. Sometimes that one leaks too, I have such terrible luck with these things.

As with many glider goodies we all have our favorites.

Mine is a Lixit bottle - found in the bird section - that has a wide mouth for easy cleaning. It attaches to the cage with a small bracket that fits on the cage bars. The bottle then just slips on and off the bracket.

The Bottle hangs outside the cage:


View from the inside showing the bracket:


I have used this style bottle for many years with my parakeets and my gliders and have never had one leak.

I forgot about the silos! They're pretty awesome; it's super cute watching critters stick their hands in the water and wash their faces with it. At least that's what the rats did! Til they chewed 'em up...

I have 2 water bottle and 2 water silos. They prefer the silos much better. I keep them all in case of a water fight, or a bottle break. I have 3 gliders so I have 4 places to get water.

The wide mouth ones I use are plastic. They are very easy to clean as well. There is a nub molded on the bottle itself that fits in the bracket.

I use the silo type water bottle and it is so cute to see them sticking their little tongues out to drink from it!
