    Tank size depends on the species.

    Small species like histrix, scobina, reticulata (magdalenae) can be kept in tanks as small as a 180 for life.

    Larger species like motoro, leoplodi, henlei, tiger, flower, etc., will need a tank with a footprint of at least 8' x 4' when they reach adulthood.

    Smaller tanks (75, 90, 125, etc.) can easily used as pup rearing tanks for a decent amount of time.
