Keeping Roly Polies as Pets

Do roly polies have to be in a big terrarium or a box or something? I know that they eat paper, cardboard, carrots, lettuce, and squash, but does a habitat need to be bigger in order to have roly babies?

A fish tank, glass or plastic, with a lid will do. They like darkness. Check this page out -- so helpful:

From cuteness.com:

Cover the bottom of the cage with hardwood mulch, organic topsoil or newspaper. Add plenty of items for the roly-polies to explore and to shelter under. Try pieces of bark, flat rocks, cardboard or crumpled paper. Keep their environment humid, as pill bugs breathe via gills rather than lungs.
