Trying to decide between two cages I own.

Hope it's okay for me to just open up a slightly older thread like this. Please let me know if I shouldn't!

I have a slight update on the cage bit.
I sold the high cage today, so that one is now out of the way and it gives me more space and calm in the room.

The other cage, the blue one that is broad and not too high, wil be a temporary cage, until I find a better one. (mostly one that will be easier to clean, hopefully)

I did run into someone selling a secondhand cage that I do like a lot:

The size is 86X86X50cm (heightXwidthXdepth) or 33,86X33,86X19,68 inch. This excludes the stand it's on, for which I will need to build some sort of plate onto so I can store food and toys there.
I did read that a round top is less convenient for hanging toys from, so I plan to put a wire 'panel' (from an old cage probably) in the cage horizontally, on the left or right side, then hang extra toys from that panel! I saw it in a video and really like the idea. The cage is high enough that I don't think it would restrict the ability to fly aroumd.

What do you guys think? Should I go for it or wait for something else?

I haven't adopted my parrotlet yet, but I rather be prepared when if I find something since it seems very difficult to find a reputable breeder in Ontario.
I recently purchased a flight cage (32"L X 21"W X 36"H). I'm hoping my parrotlet will be under a year old when I adopt it, do you think this is too big?

I've seen in many websites and forums that the biggest cage I can afford is the best. But after reading some more threads here, I'm starting to doubt my cage choice since it might be a bit too big if I end up getting a baby parrotlet.
