I don't remember them being recommended being held in anything smaller than a 20. They like things to be dark and a nice cave...this can be made out of PVC. You might want to do some research into how this is done.

Ive been reading and it says they need a thick sand bed, i only have 20lbs of sand in its only 1" deep. Will this be enough?

Also it says they can break glass. This is drawing me away from the idea of having him as a pet and making me wanna give him to the lfs. Can anyone tell me if this true?

I've read that it can happen but I've never ever heard anybody have experience of it happening.

Our lfs had a couple and when I asked about them they said it would be unusual for it to happen and they had never heard of it actually occurring. If they are fed correctly and not starving they should be fine. And you can always upgrade to acrylic when it gets bigger.

On youtube there are some poor sad examples of people trying to get them to break the glass by leaving them hungry and teasing them with food.

They are really beautiful and unique creatures. Let's see a good pic asap!!!lol
