Default Tanks for robos

Hi,
I have a robo thatís currently in a glass Aquarian tank, itís a great tank for him but Iím looking for something better. What are the best ones for robos? Iím from the uk and have tried to find a good tank but thereís doesnít seem to be any good ones.
Also - what wheels have people found are best? Iíve tried the flying saucer wheel (he never used it) and the wooden trixie wheel (it was too stiff so he struggled with it).

My Robo lives in an aquarium which he seems to like because he loves to burrow and build tunnels in the deep substrate.
Do you mean bigger when you say you want something better?
Junglepets and Porton Aquatics sell tanks in a variety of sizes.
As for wheels, my Robo doesn't like a flying saucer either but loves his upright plastic wheel that sits in his sand pit.

Yeah something bigger I think, I saw these two but as heís my first robo I didnít know if theyíd be good for him? He likes to burrow too and never uses the hides I put inside for him.

The Marrakesh terrarium is a good option. I have one and it's a good quality tank.

My only concerns with the Living World cage are the 1cm holes in the sides, which a Robo could be able to squeeze out of. The lid also needs meshing as the ventilation gaps are 2cm. Although it's 10cm wider than the Marrakesh, I would say the Marrakesh is better from a safety perspective.

Yes, i agree with sushi and would go for the Marrakesh given the choice between those two.

My Robo has a little house and uses it like a porch to get to the entrance hole to one of his underground tunnels. Sometimes he sits at the door of the house and peeks out but never sleeps in it.
Typical Robo behaviour i guess.
He has a submerged guinea pig sized Ferplast house on each side of the tank to act as a support for his sandbath, wheel and ceramic mushroom. I think that he sleeps in them but its hard to say because he spends most of the day underground and pops up at night from various holes like a mole.
