Thanks. I make my own enclosures :eek:

I'm making a new one tomorrow for my Chevron based on the acrylic ones I've seen on sites like tarantulacages.com and from guys here on the forum.
I make mine out of glass though, and just have holes drilled in the glass and add ventilation covers. These too I cant buy locally so I buy furniture ones at the hardware store and modify them slightly.

I am planning to make myself enclosures like the ones I've seen TheNatural make for his terrariums, in the long run ... it's still all a learning process for me.

New photos of Lucy

This is the first time I've handled Lucy :)
(hey, only been in the hobby 2 months)
It was awesome - have been taking her for "walks" ...



When I open her enclosure she comes up to me ...


And now I can see her up close :razz:

Where my enclosures live

OK this is where I keep my enclosures right now ... on top of my Bearded dragon tank in my home office. Though I can see I'm gonna run out of space soon :}

My Emilia spiderling "Chilli" (B.Emilia)

Those terarriums are good but l think ventilation is not enough.And also l would like to add something,you should decrease the humidity in your Grammostola rosea's and Brachypelma auratum's terrariums.

Thanks Fatich ... The Auratums enclosure is very dry and have already made Lucy's new home a desert type enclosure with a screen top. I'm trying to get some of those circular vents from tarantulacages.com :)

I am really impressed by your glass cutting skills. Very nice looking. I might have to try my hand as some glass cutting one of these days. Your going to have to build yourself a shelf soon!! Im sure that will be a breeze for you. :D

Both rosea and auratum have wet seasons in nature, they should have no problem with a moist terrarium, as long as it isn't the whole year trough...

Really nice photo's I am really enjoying the cages. I wish I could build cages like that, sadly I am only useful when it comes to building things when it is legos. :cool:

Your enclosure are bad ass, thanks for giving me some good idea :) btw do you light your enclosure with Uv light so that the plant won't die ?
