Nice additions man. Are you still planning on placing 2-3 of them together?
i live in dallas texas.......Thanks. If you came all the way to Calgary, Alberta, Canada I do sell them.
are you kinda lost??it looks all very nice abracadabra, but where is the ventilation?
I think excessive ventilation is a common misconception with fully planted vivariums for tarantulas. Tarantulas spend the majority of their lives in a stagnant burrow or enclosed web that allows for little air flow and ventilation. In all the vivariums the plants produce oxygen when they photosynthesise and thus scrub the air clean. Mold is kept at bay due to acidic properties of the soil and the addition of many species of detritivores including isopods, snails, and worms. So the combination of natural behavior and the natural ecological cycle the tarantulas do quite well. Plus if someone is truly worried, gas exchange does happen at the lids since each lid is not completely sealed. Also when they are opened for feeding purposes some gas exchange occurs.it looks all very nice abracadabra, but where is the ventilation?
Thanks. I have a male coming in the mail right now.Well, I'm jealous. Nice lookin girl you got there Abraxas. :drool:
Just sun light. My room gets pretty bright during the afternoon.Hey AbraxasComplex,did you us any light source while you were taking your balfouri's picture? or it is just sun light ?
Some people tell that, color of the balfouri is not so bright as we see in the photos,that's why l asked that question.Just sun light. My room gets pretty bright during the afternoon.
It does depend on what light reflects off their hairs. I find that if I do not have bright full spectrum lighting (from the sun or a fluorescent lamp) her legs appear nearly black. Only in the proper light is she the navy blue.Some people tell that, color of the balfouri is not so bright as we see in the photos,that's why l asked that question.
