The cage calculator is very helpful:

Perkin, Bramble, Teasel, Oswald :love:
Fizz, Cuddles, Bubbles, Horace, Ollie, Humphrey, Fergus, Max, Monty, Pootle, Roger, Marley - "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle"

Your current cage does sound small, so yes, now would be a good time to upgrade - have a look through the cage set up section for some ideas, and if you let us know what restrictions you have in terms of space and budget, we can recommend some specific options. :)

Yeah you might want to upgrade your cage, you don't want your rats getting crowded in one corner. Adequate space is vital.
