    So I recently bought a 10 quart bag of reptisoil from ZooMed and mixed in some coconut fiber and put it in my 20 gallon tank. I noticed that it wouldn't even cover the complete bottom of the tank enough to burrow or anything. My question is how much dry substrate would I need for the proper size and depth for a burrow? Also, What is the ratio of dry vs. wet substrate?

    Likely depends on the kind of spider.

    20 gallons is huge for a tarantula.

    I’m not sure I understand this part. Whatever ratio you mix between wet and dry substrate, the moisture levels are going to change by the day.

    20 gallons? Bare minimum. I directly offer a whole house, like happened with one 'brat' of my S.subspinipes :angelic:

    I know, but it's the only tank I have and she loves exploring it.

    Like how much space does it take up dry vs. wet
