    My setup is identical to yours for my OBT.Yours(nice) looks to be about the same size as mine.It did the same thing as yours is doing now when I first put it into it.It hung around the top for almost two weeks.It now has a nice little home all webbed up under the corkbark.Throw in a cricket and an orange blur comes out,nails the cricket and back into it's hide.Cricket doesn't know what hit 'em..lol..fast little buggers...peace..

    Fast, your not kidding!:eek:

    I lost the last one I tried to move:(
    I squished the poor little guy:(
    This one was not to difficult to move.
    I still have one more, but I do not have a box for it yet.
    Time to go shopping:)

    Mine always hangs out at the top of the container when i've moved it too....i wonder why they do that?

    I actually attempted to remove the hide from it's enclosure, hoping it would just web the whole thing up. A week went by, no webbing at all, so I threw a hide back in and it went to town right away.

    The bathtub method is one of the best methods for transferring T's to new enclosures.
