    Pics of that would be nice. I'll hit you up back on this thread in a couple of weeks then.

    When one has a lot of music on CDs, what would you suggest?

    I gave it a try. Big Lots sells CD cases. 25 for $5. That's 4 enclosures for $5 using the method from the OP. I changed mine up a bit and can make 5. Here are pictures of mine. This is the first one I made. It's a little rough. The next ones should be better. I'll clean it up and get it ready to house 2 of my darlingi and p murinus in these.

    You should seen my first attempt xD
    Don't forget to seal the bottom holes with hot glue or else you will always have parts of substrate on your shelf :D

    Yeah, I'll seal that up later. I'm going to cut the hole in the top a bit bigger. I am also going to put hooks and rubber bands to keep the lid closed. Just as a safety precaution. Lol

    Here it is. Opened the hole up bigger on top. Put some bands on it to keep it closed. A fake tree. A water dish. (Which I glued to the side. Just in case whatever T I put in here burrows below it.) I am going to add a bark hide to it too. Not to bad of an enclosure. I'll make the other 4 and all three of my C. darlingi and P. murinus will go in one. As soon as they are big enough. This one is for the P. muticus.

    Hey, I know good advice when I see it! Those are perfect. Cheap, too. I can dremel them in half so they are not as deep for smaller slings.

    Can this be used as arboreal as well or does this only suit for terrestrial Ts?

    I keep both inside, for terrestrials I add more substrate and for arboreals I add more stuff to climb
