I paid $45 shipped. I love the tanks that tarantulacages.com makes but that are too rich for my blood. $45 seemed like a nice price.

I just don't like that the top on those is a full screen. You won't be able to hold humidity as well in it. I think it is the same price as the tarantulahomes medium one with close to those dimensions.

The large aboreal cage from Taratulacages.com with the same dimensions is $65 which isn't bad but then you have to tack on shipping. Though i'm sure the cages from tarantulacages.com are better quality.

Easy solution tape it from the inside...
Until you get the proper ventilation you like....
So that it would hold humidity.....

Just a couple of things that ran through my mind:

will it yellow over time
will it haze over time

wish the door were larger
Cheaper to get a local 10 gallon tank and make a door yourself???

Cheaper to make them yourself out of acrylic if your handy.

If it were say $25.00 a piece, then I would buy some myself.

Let us know the quality of these when you get them.

Well i'm just getting into aboreals (after 8 years in the hobby) other than a.avic. So I can buy these as i go. Its hard to find a nice cheap cage these days. I'm getting tired of buying 10gal. at the pet store. They are heavy and take up too much room.

I got the enclosure today just in time (getting a 3" P.regalis frm Paul Becker tomorrow) and the enclosure is 1/8" thick, it seems to be pretty good quality. I'll let ya'll know how it holds up.
