    I have put this enclosure together to rehouse my 1.5" C. cyaneopubescens sling. The size is 7.5" w x 3.5" d x 4.5" t. The substrate to bottom of (solid) lid is 3.5". I tried to have several anchor points for the web using the cork bark and twigs. The water dish is about 1.25" diamter and 3/8" deep. The ventilation holes are 1/8" diameter and encircle the entire enclosure. I have the sizes here since it is hard to get a feel for from the pictures. The twigs not lying on the substrate as litter are hot glued in place.

    This sling recently molted and I want to rehouse it soon. I am looking for feedback on the set up and any changes that you would make. Thanks!

    Looks good to me :)
    It will make good use of those twigs and rough surfaces, though slings tend to web a bit less than juvies/adults ime. Or maybe they just outgrow their enclosures too fast to get some extensive webbing going :D

    Lookin good! It's going to look really cool once it's all webbed up. Just make sure those ventilation holes aren't bigger than the carapace

    Happy hiding out on the back of the cork bark.

    Very nice! I've started to decorate similarly for this species- broad surfaces(cork bark, fake succulent type plants with sort of umbrella shape etc), some twigs. They seem to like that.

    It's fine, nice decorations in there. It will outgrow the container due to its width of 3" or so. However, for now, it will be great. It's a faster growing species.

    Not going to lie I kinda love it, really nice looking. It should work fine for its size.

    So cool! Those OXO style containers work really well.
