 Centipede care

I was looking into getting these guys and cant find anything on how to care for them. I saw them at a reptile show in Colorado, they were red and orange. What species of centipede should i get? I have a 20 gallon long tank already from my snake, would this be a good size for the centipede? Do i have to have any special lighting, heating, or humidity? What should i feed them? Also how much do they cost?Thanks for all the help.

they range from 20 dollars to 100.00 depends on the size ,most are very cheap. the gigantis species which are arizona, and puerto rico, will cost more the vietnamese will be cheaper, tanzania. the tank is good, they like to eat pinkies. crikets are ok for smaller pedeís, but they tend to attract a lot of natís and mites. they die ,and there flesh rotts before you get to clean, so you will have to be quick to clean the cage the following day after your pede has ate. donít ever try to handle it. they are mostly for display.
