Optirat Plus Rack, Cage-Mounted Avidity/Edstrom Valves

Our Largest, Multi-Level Rack System for Rats

Optirat Plus Rack, Cage-Mounted Avidity/Edstrom Valves complete with two 6-foot hoses, cages/valves not included

Recommendations: This rack has a 30 cage capacity. Typically customers will order 45 cages in order to have enough cages available for cage change out. 
There are two cage top styles compatible with our autowater cages: the Optirat Plus Auto-Water Cage Top which provides extra headroom at the front corners, and is not for use with water bottles, or our Optirat Plus External Water Bottle/Bag Cage Top, which should be ordered if water bottle usage is also planned for some or all of the cages. We also recommend purchasing our Optirat Plus Cage Mezzanine CP79A102M for each cage to provide enrichment by increasing cage complexity and living space.
