I do not think they will use the tubes then they would need another way to get to the shelves.  I reccommend building a cube cage.  I have had 2 so far and i love them.  There have been previous threads about them i believe and you can also find some information about them online.  Hope that helps.

That is completely not a rabbit cage, and it totally illsuited for a rabbit. look up NIC condo on the internet and you will find instructions for a much better and cheaper cage.

ya BUT I already own this cage. ;)  I would take out the middle section to make it short like most rabbit cages are,  I will take the tubes out because they won't use them.  I can add different shelves too. ;D

even so, the dimensions are way too small unless maybe it was turned on its side, and even then no. Just sell it on ebay and use the money from that. NIC condos are extremely cheap to make. Mine cost like 40 dollars.

That cage is NOT suitable for a rabbit.  As Mauve suggested, a NIC-type cage would be your best bet.  Check out rabbit.org for more info on them.

They have real rabbit cages, I always HIGHLY recommend a wire cage with a grate on the bottom. Use something large enough for bunny to sit on in the cage so it's not constantly sitting in wire, ie. Super Pet Cuddle Cups, bunny safe all natural corn mat, or towel (not ideal, but watch for chewing, can be deadly if ingested).

Personally, I have the space that my bunny does not have a cage, but a bedroom. He roams all day long (even while we are gone). He is with the cats and when I'm fostering kittens, he is with them too. He is litter pan trained and doesn't chew on stuff (apparently, I'm lucky!!!). Otherwise he is put in his bedroom at night, it's too noisy while we are sleeping when the bunny and cats are chasing each other around.
You can always try a fenced area in a room.

Sorry this is so long, I love my bunny, can't get enough! Check out freecycle sites in your city, local newspaper ads or craigslist.com for used cages. Good luck.
1 God, 1 husband, 3 cats, 2 bunnies, 3 mice, 2 newts, 2 tree frogs, 2 fish/ live plant tanks; I think that covers everyone!

If you have a dwarf rabbit it is not reccommended that you have a wire bottom cage but then again i dont know what kind you have.  The spaces usually are too big and they can get their little feet stuck and hurt.  For a "regular" sized rabbit they are fine and probably offer better cleaning.  Right now my bunnies are in a multi-level cage with a solid floors and ramps and come out when i am home but once i move i plan on having a large free roam area for the bunnies like crc. 
Crc your bunny is so lucky that you love it enough to give it its own bedroom!!!
