  5. It’s only harmful if the foam fights back, you’ve been warned.

    Honestly, those foam backgrounds that come with the exo terras are absolutely terrible, they look tacky as hell, take up to much space and tarantulas have a penchant for either ripping them apart or finding a way to hide behind them.

    Just remove it, if you really want a background for the enclosure then look into getting cork bark tile. It's half the thickness of the foam backgrounds, looks 1,000x times better, and tarantulas can't chew through it or get behind it.

    I almost got rid of the foam that came with mine, except that my P. metallica seems to hunt crickets as they climb their way up. The flip side of that is of course there are dried up cricket carcasses along the back seam.

    Foam, it’s a gateway substance toward further abuse.

    Submitted because all the serious stuff was answered quite adeptly.
