Hi all,
I am planning on getting a pair of baby corn snakes from the same breeder, and I'm just wondering what would be acceptable for housing? I have a 10 gal that I was thinking about putting both in, but after I read that baby corn snakes are more likely to eat each other than adults, I have put an end to that plan. I don't really want to go buy another tank and heater (but I will if I have to... ooh, my poor credit card ;P ), so I was thinking about taking my empty 20 gal tank, putting an aquarium seperator in the middle and setting up a uth in the middle, so I could use one heater for both. Assuming this is enough space for each baby, would being able to see and smell another snake stress them? Thanks

[nq:1]gal that I was thinking about putting both in, but after I read that baby corn snakes are more likely to eat each other than adults,
If they're eating when you get them, and you continue to feed them well, its probably a pretty low risk. I've sure seen lots of pics of baby corns housed together, but I haven't kept corn snake hatchlings myself.

to that plan. I don't really want to go buy another tank and heater (butI will if I have to... ... seperator in the middle and setting up a uth in the middle, so I could use one heater for both.

I think that's a smashing idea for risk reduction.
I think if you separate them during feeding time, they won't eat each other. Cannibalism between newborns happens when two snakes try to swallow the same prey, one on each end.

I have my corns housed two to a 'tank' they about 8 months old. No problems whatsoever.

I, too, have multiple corns to a tank-haven't had any problems.

Thanks for the advice all. I actually decided to go to WalMart today and splurge on a couple tupperware containers at the large cost of $7. Actually, I think I could house them both in tupperware (comfortably, not rack style) up to adulthood, and not spend more than $50 in total. Emotion: smile They had some really nice clear ones that were really big! Anyways, I've googled a bit, and I think I'll keep 'em seperate until their ready to breed... have heard too many stories about peeking in the tank to only find one with it's head in the other's throat.
Hooray, they'll be here tomorrow!!! I'm soo excited, my first snakes! Please send some nice vibes their way, and hopefully they'll arrive safely and not too stressed. :-D

I remember your first post on tarantulas, when your brother had (in a drunken stupor) agreed to take on someone's T, then somehow dumped it on you for care... Emotion: smile
Hope your new spider is excellent! Emotion: smile Now post pics!!!
