i have mine in 5 gallon tank, he eats one cricket every other day, gets one mealworm a month. Substrate is potting soil, peat moss, peat humus and stuff, no fertilizers etc, all clean. THey like to burrow so i have around 10 inches of substrate. I also gave it a cave, which he loves. Humidity needs to be high, around 80-90%. maybe even 100%, Always have water available. For humidity and hydration. Heat needs to be around 80-85, i just use an undertank heater. They are terrestial and they barely see sun because of leaf cover so its ok, to keep them in a dark area. Black bulbs make them glow in the dark colour, its really cool.
