Nice! I've been looking for show quality mice while trying to breed my own to be closer to show quality. I haven't actually found show quality mice yet but I've made some progress with breeding the ears and tails of my mice to be more show quality. Notice that I said more show quality not actually show quality yet.I used to go to swap meets! I didn't know they were still doing them. I used to have some really really nice mice. A couple that would mop up at shows.
Great setup! I used totes too. They work great. I drilled small holes around the sides, about 2 inches down from the lip.here are some pics showing how I set up a mouse cage. I just use those plastic toats that you buy at the store. I usually either cut a hole in the lid and replace it with wire or create an entirely wire lid.
I fill the bottom of the toat with a cup to a cup and a half of pelletized bedding from TSC.

Then I add a layer off straw. This pic is blurry.

I also put some pelletized bedding in a little litter box in the corner. It's really just a small coffee can turned sideways in the corner.

Then the food and water is water is added so that I can finally add the mice. (There's more than one mouse in there. They just enjoy making nests under the straw.)
