    If this is 30 degrees Celsius, yes, the tarantula will be fine. If it gets a little warmer than that for a short period, it should be okay, but you don't want prolonged periods of high heat.

    Depends for how long. A day? Sure. Months? Harder to tell. I’ll let more experienced keepers answer this one but my two cents would be to keep a lot of water available, and give it soft substrate with a burrow in case it wants to escape the heat.
     
  6. not really a whole day just 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

    Hmm. It’s warm but not quite as alarming. I’m gonna tap out here since I have no experience with keeping Chacos anywhere near those temps. One of the more experienced breeders can help, I believe they use higher temps for reading slings.

    Like all tarantulas, I would say they should be fine with temps in the mid 80s (F) and slightly higher for short periods. Make sure to keep the enclosure away from sunlight. I never let my tarantula room get above 85 (F), and most of my Ts are native to South American regions. Remember that the inside of the enclosure is likely going to be warmer than the outside.

    It was particularly hot last month around here, and the temps were frequently around 86 F (30 C) in my room. All my tarantulas survived it, but they seemed a bit more restless than usual. Having enough substrate for them to burrow, making sure they have a constantly full water dish, and maybe even adding a bit more water to the substrate in a corner would be good precautions if you have to keep your Ts in those conditions for extended periods of time.

    My apartment gets to 100 degrees (38 Celsius) quite often during the summer, since I don’t have air conditioning. My tarantulas all seem to do fine, including my B. hamorii and G. pulchripes. 30 degrees Celsius is nothing to worry about, as long as they have water.
