    I would say it's about 16 inches in length and height and about 10 in width it is a 16-18 quart container

    Are you getting the male for free or buying it? I am just curious. I don't know how new you are to the hobby. You may already know that males don't live a long time. Female A. chalcodes are available at fairly low prices ($50).

    Otherwise there is nothing wrong with getting a male. All of them are fun to own.

    My wood is collected from either lakeshores or a nature preserve.

    I live in Arizona so don't have lake shore but I'll go out into the brush and find some wood I may be able to use

    2.5" isn't a sling, its a juvie. Dry sub, a hide, deep enough sub to construct a burrow and a water dish....so simple.

    Hmmm i have a possible solution, my local dollar store sells some large food containers, i may just use those since the are thin enough I can just poke holes in

    They are about 5 inches high so that's would be enough for the little guy to burrow, only problem is width they I would guess 5 inches wide also but they are a cheap solution I suppose

    I live in Sierra vista I am by no lakes lol I think the closest one is by flagstaff and that's 5-6 hours away I think, I can't remember how long it took me last time :)

    Parker Canyon Lake is that far?


    Lol, I hope you realize I am just teasing you...hehe


    Plastic food containers are a pain to ventilate, visibility isn't as good and the rigid tops are hard to smoothly remove...I tried them at one point, learn from my mistake...I'd just go with a deli cup.
