I'm glad the advice is working! They really are great pet snakes.

As for housing, "cost" and "quality" are unfortunately mutually exclusive. I do not agree with keeping these snakes, at least once past the baby stage, in tubs; and once past juveniles, in racks. Adults really deserve the stability and safety of a full enclosure. Due to the species' needs, plastic housing is best. The two best manufacturers are Animal Plastics and Boaphile Plastics. Neither is cheap, but both are solid, long-last investments that will meet your pet's needs for a long time to come. You may be able to find used models on Craigslist or eBay; if you do go that route, ask lots of questions and disinfect carefully before using.

Good luck!
