Hey fellas!

Quick question. For a full grown 6 inch avic metallica...
Would u guys choose a exoterra 12×12×18 or a 12x12x24?

Having a hard time deciding which to get once it grows up. i do love how tall the larger one is..

Thanks!

Go with 18, not that 24 wouldn’t work..

The larger the setup the easier for prey to hide, lower probability of prey/predator interactions- not good.

I agree the 12x12x18 would be the better option. But you won’t need this size for quite a while if you’re getting a sling!

6" won't make or break an adult spider. It's not like it's a sling which you're dying to grow up some. If you really like the 24"....I say go for it!

It will be a loooong time before it is needed. I'd wait until if goes on sale somewhere maybe if money is tight or definitely at least make sure thst is what you want. You literally have years! :)
