grid covering

Hey there,
You can probably use anything you want just so long as you can; keep it clean, protect their feet from pain and injury, and afford it.
The rugs would have to be washed every day, so you would need a few of them so they have something while cycling through the laundry.
There are alternatives to coroplast, check out using formica, or melamine, which is what i did. there are instructions at cavy.secutores.com.
If you are planning on putting chips on top of the rug, it wont have a barrier wall around the perimeter, so the floor under the cage will always be a mess.
Hope this helps,

Thanks alot. I was also wondering if I could not use bedding and just put some news papers due to the fact that I live in NYC where the bedding costs alot and I would need alot since the size of my planned cage will be 10.5 sq. ft.

bedding.

guineapigcages.com has recommendations on bedding. Some people appear to use shredded newspaper, but i think it would require buying a crosscut shredder, because strips would be too hard to spot clean. Hard to scoop some pee out of the corner when the strips are 20 inches long.
