Nice deep faunarium, 18 inch long by foot high... 2/3rds fill it with substrate, maybe put a good looking bit a bogwood in there half bury it..... throw in your obts and leave them to it.... I pour a cup a water in one corner every 3 weeks or so in summer once a month if needed in winter and a for a 5 heavy commune about 10 crickets a fortnight.......it's great fun watching them erupt from the sub to take the crickets lol Valley a Death our poxicator call's it lol

grab yourself something about double the size of a cricket tub, for 5 id say its a bit small to be honest give them plenty of room.... They do interact and use the same tunnels and hides etc but if you cramp them I think it will end in disaster....
