  4. Thanks! All very cheap set ups, here in UK the Exo Terra plastic fuanariums are around £9 GBP, the Braplast boxes about £3.50 GBP, the live food boxes for the juvi's come free with the crickets and are quite strong ridgid ventilated plastic, doing my bit for the environment by recycling lol, but the cheap flimsy ones I get from some stores I just throw away. As these are on display in my living room I like to make the set ups look a little natural.

    From what I see in the photo the B. smithi's substrate looks very damp except where he/she is at (above the hide). I would recommend to dry out the substrate. As for as the setups.... very nice!

    nice setups, but I'd suggest more substrate for your P. murinus though.

  8. Thanks for your comment, I have now added a little more ventilation to the lid and removed some of the moss to let the enclosure dry out slowly. The B smithi has now burrowed down into the substrate beside the plastic flower pot I put in as a hide, and seems happy enough, pic was taken only a few days after I re-housed it, so guess the substrate was a little damp to start with.

    Thanks for this, since taking the pic, my P murinus has webbed herself in under the logs I think she is in pre-molt, so will leave her be and see what happens, when she emerges again will do a little re-moddeling as you sugested and add more substrate. Mark

    Very nice! Great ventilation on the arboreal too.
     
  12. Thanks again Suzy, the lid has been drilled out too, have made a few smaller versions in 500ml size for some smaller slings as well.
