My current cage is 3 feet wide, 2 feet deep, and 4 foot tall plus a shelf under. It is coated wire of some sort-got it as it was listed as glider safe.
I am now thinking of going bigger and wondering what other's have as far as size and material. Budget needs to be less than 200 dollars with shipping included.
Any ideas are appreciated and I am in no hurry as their cage is great just after reading bigger is better.

I started out with two girls in a Brisbane size cage, but don't know brand, it had 1 large door on front.

I upgraded them to a Madagascar cage. Needed to replace their original cage due to a couple of small rust spots. We were also moving the cage to our bedroom at that time and I wanted something bigger, but needed a smaller footprint for the space. Then I added Ollie, once introductions were done. However, soon after I had to move across country, and couldn't take it with me.

After moving, I purchased a Congo size, but it was called HQ large sturdy. I was able to bring it with me when I moved back across country.

My current living arrangement is small and cramped, the Congo sized cage was just taking up too much space. Also, as it got harder for me to maintain it,not just for weekly cleans, but daily tidies as well. I ended up giving into getting a Brisbane cage. I love it and they're just doing well. Now that it's not as tall, I was able to fashion a cage top playground for them.

The Madagascar and my current cage, the Brisbane I got from EN. The largest cage I got from Suncoast Sugar Gliders, called the HQ Lrg. Sturdy.

I do have photos, harder to post them without Photobucket, however, the Christmas cage thread Christmas 2017 I got a pic on, and I have some cage designs on YouTube, where I present various cage set ups and decor (furnishings and accessories) for fun & safe cages.
