    Which centipede enclosure is better?

    Typically centipedes can reach the top of any aquarium as they can grip on the silicone in the corners. So if they have *any* chance to get out of a top they will. I have had centipedes in the Sterilite bin style you have with no issues. You do need to put small holes in for ventilation, and...

    Pros and cons of popular tarantula YouTubers?

    I agree about the Tarantula Kat assessment. I unsubscribed from her channel for just that reason. She also came on this forum for about a day, was sort of snarky, and then left.

    Opinions on “Free Roaming” Reptiles

    The only critters I have seen this with (which make sense) are tortoises who get free roam of a room or two, a green iguana that has its own room, or a chameleon that will pretty much stay on the plant it is living on with some ground boundaries. Any other reptile is likely a bad, bad idea.

    Smoker wood chips for isopods

    Just checking to see if one of these products is good for isopod enclosures, or are there chemicals/dangers in the way they are processed? I have some from a product called Cameron's Alder Smoker Wood Chips. @Aquarimax and @Elytra and Antenna, I'm curious about your opinions. Thank you!

    What can I use as substitute for Cork Barks?

    Cork is also quite expensive here. This likely doesn't help you much in the Philippines, but it might give you ideas. I've been using birch firewood in enclosures for my drier species. Cheap and looks nice. The firewood is already kiln dried, so I just rinse it off and add it.

    Whats the best large tarantula?

    This thread is pretty indicative that people don't really read, they skim. The only T's that are legal to own/buy in Australia are Australian T's. And you wouldn't want to handle any of them.

    Isopods would likely take over a little terrarium like that in no time. Some species breed like rabbits.

    Caribbean Centruroides gracilis

    You should definitely not keep them together. The Caribbean locale version of the this species is parthenogenic, and the Florida version is not. You can see more about this in a search of these forums.

    Superworms and mealworms turn into beetles if you don't crush their heads when you feed.

    Pros and cons of popular tarantula YouTubers?

    There appear to be 3 types of YouTubers with tarantulas -- 1) those who are looking to promote products, sell merchandise, etc. 2) those looking to make $ off of YouTube views and viewers, 3) pure hobbiests. @Tomoran will always be the best as he has no ulterior motives other than enjoying his...

    Isopod Substrate

    The other thing worth mentioning with the isopod hobby is many (including me) are using a one-size fits all approach, throwing everything and the kitchen sink at every species of isopod and seeing what they like. But each species has serious preferences. For example, I'd never guess in a...
