:Hi John,
:I've never kept snakes in aquariums, due mostly to the escape factor and the can be more difficult to clean. I've kept adult kings in racks for the last 10 years or so. Before that I always kept them in custom made cages with sliding glass. Now I use 28 qt. rubbermades for your average adult kings and 60 qt. sterlites for the monster adults. A 20 long would work fine for an average size adult. Good luck.

::Brandon,
::Hi when you had california kingsnakes back in the day, what size of a tank did you keep your adult snakes in. I am agoing to get 4 cali kings from a private breeder in august. By tank , I understand gallons better lol
::some places read their tanks by liters and it throws me off all the time. also how much does a good digital scale cost for weighing snakes.

::thanks for your time,
