Tank diagram explanation

A glass tank measuring 60cm x 30cm x 30cm high is shown with a wooden framed lid which is three quarter plastic or shade cloth. The cage should be kept in a dark well-ventilated area. There is a mist bottle on top of the cage to denote misting every two days in warm weather, less in cooler weather. On the tank floor there are rocks and pieces of bark and friable soil 30–50cm deep. Slaters are detritus feeders and need plant materials, dead animals and leaf litter in the a feeding lid. Room temperature range for slaters 10–20°C.
