When you start up the game, you will automatically have access to one corral inside the conservatory. This corral will quickly get filled up with Pink Slimes as you gather them around the area. Shortly after, you may come across Cotton Slimes waiting out in the fields. With these extra Slimes, you are going to need more room.

To build a corral, you simply need to interact with one of the many small podiums that you see next to the plots inside the conservatory. This will bring up a screen that lets you choose what you want to build on the plot of land. A corral will cost you 250 Newbucks.

Make sure you choose carefully when upgrading a corral. After all, certain Slimes need specific upgrades to keep happy. For instance, Phosphor Slimes need both high walls and a solar shield so that they don’t escape and so the sun doesn’t hurt them.
