Nicely done!! It'll look pretty radical once it's webbed up.
Arboreal / Terrestrial
My two arboreal enclosures (housed for a 3/4" and 1" Avicularia Purpurea slings)
Terrestrial enclosure is for my 1" Brachypelma Albilosum
Substrate is EcoEarth coconut fiber
Please update When He/she has redecorated, looks great.
Here my new eclosures for the G. Pulchra and the A.Geniculata.
The pebbles are they basking spot. Beneath that is the heat mat. They provide a very good place to bask, and maintains very good the heat.
Bioactive desert vivarium with custom background. This is first time I build a desert type biotope. I haven't moved my tarantula in yet.
Are the cactus naturals?
Yes all cactus and succulents are live plants. Thanks I'm quite satisfied with it as well.
Be careful with the prongs, if they are the hard ones, if the tarantula falls on them could hurt the tarantula.
Hi, I took this in consideration and all the prongs are of the soft type. I can easily hold or press the cacti and they will bend not sting.
I would add some natural dry grass, they look great with that
I will be looking for this in the next few days but I think it will be a little hard to find here.
You can do it yourself very easily. Take a grass, put it upside down. Let it dry xD
I'm currently living in Bangkok not much grass here XD
May the grass be with you hahahahahaha
Nice tanks! I'm planning to build something like this for my second spider. Do you have any pictures of the building process or any tips?
No images sorry! But tips of course:
First of all I make an idea of how I want it to be the enclosure.
Then after a storm I look for some driftwoods in the beach. You can buy them too, but being from thailand I think is going to be pretty easy to get some wood xD. Then I sterilize the woods boiling them and re-heating it in the oven until it dries completely.
After that, I make the blend of the substrates, for me, the best one is a mix of unfertilized (very important) soil and a mix of cocofiber. I use 2/3 of soil and 1/3 of coco fiber. This creates a natural looking soil and maintains good levels of humidity if necesary.
Next I put all the woods in the enclosure to get an idea of what I want. I put a first layer of substrate and then I put the woods carefully, because they need to stay firm. Add more layers of substrare to create different heights in the enclosure. During this part I usually add the plants on it.
Finally, I add some biomass to the soil. I mix a part of the soil with springtails and isopods. They get rid of any organic waste in the enclosure, keeping it clean and oxygenated.
Thanks I use about the same methods and yeah wood is dirt-cheap at petstores here
What a luk, here here a simple drift wood 20x20cm 20-40€...
I pay mine that size about 3-5€ here haha
Just put my Mexican red knee inside and the cactus are growing really fast.
