Haven't seen mouse balls in years. My laptop has a trackpad.

But seriously, folks, I concur - excessive time in Bouin's fixative
will harden the tissue - move it to 70% alcohol.

I've used Davidson's fixative (3 parts water, 3 parts alcohol, 2 parts
37% formaldehyde, 1 part acetic acid) with human testis as an
alternative to Bouin's fixative.
