So i've got a b.albo, g.rosea, g.pulchripes and a c. versicolor (my main worry); all of which are slings. Was thinking of transferring my t's into a cabinet in my room but was worried that the air conditioning i turn on throughout the night would be a problem? it gets to about 20 degrees celsius

Are there any vents pointing toward the tarantulas? I've read that slings can be vulnerable to drafts.

Nothing direct. Theres a glass sliding door on the cabinet which has slight breathing room on each end even when fully closed

I don't know about the Caribena versicolor, but I would expect the other three to be fine. (My tarantulas -- including an Avicularia avicularia -- are in the same room as I am, and the AC never seems to hurt them as long as there is no draft blowing on them.)

It shouldn't be a problem, apart from the C. versicolour, the others will adjust to the day/night temps, which should be provided anyway, not sure about the versi as it's still very vulnerable as a sling.
