The terrarium should be cover, because the snails can crawl out of it. It is desirable to arrange the small holes in the lid for better gas exchange. In a pinch, you can just lift the lid to form a small gap. At the bottom of the aquarium to put the litter. Litter can serve as soil “Begonia”, or ideally coconut substrate of 5-7 cm of the mound.

The law, ironically, not particularly regulates the rules of keeping a pet in the apartment, but imposes a few simple requirements . The main thing is that he really lived in the apartment, but not in the hallway or in the stairwell, so as not celebrating estestvennuyu in the entrance, and that the statutory silence about the time didn’t disturb neighbors by barking/hissing/curlykale.
