Corn snakes do have similar houing and feeding requirements as they are of similar size. An adult can be kept ina 20 gallon aquarium, and babies can be kept in tubs and 10 gallon aquariums or critter keepers. Since corn snakes are arboreal, I would reccommend putting a climbing branch or two in the cage. Snakes in general lead solitary lives so I wiuldn’t reccommend keeping them together. If you do, give them plenty of room and be sure to watch for aggression. Also, seperste them for about an hour after feeding.

In my opinion corns are a little harder to deal with than balls, but most people disagree. I like balls because they’re usually so relaxed, but most corns seem a little more jumpy and squirmy. But every snake is different, and you never know until you take the plunge. Corns are usually good eaters once you get them going, and they hardly ever bite. Good luck!
