    So there was this way cool water system BYC was advertising a while ago, it was called the Aqua Miser or something like that. Basically, it was a massive hanging rabbit waterer with the metal nipple thing (does that make any sense? lol). I really want some, but they're pretty expensive. Does anybody know of any cheap alternative similar to that? It needs to be at least a gallon, and I need at least 10 of them. If I could at least find a bunch of those nipple heads I could make my own. Help? [​IMG]

    I've been meaning to order these myself and give them a try. You'll want to go to waldeneffect.org to purchase the avian aqua miser. You can buy one for $30 or a DYI kit to build three for the same $30. Didn't check shipping. Let us know how they are if decide to try them. I've had the site bookmarked thinking I need to get those. My waters are so heavy when full and they get dirty so fast. Good luck!

    Oh, yah. I don't know if that's pricey for the parts. If you find them cheaper else where or if anyone else knows, please share.
