I hear ya but I'm just doing the best I can while remaining practical. If its up a lot higher, feeding as well as getting an egg sac out may prove difficult due to angles and such. Also in the grand scheme of things, one has to wonder, do these guys have an awareness of how high up they really are? If so, I doubt raising the hide even the max available 8 inches or so would make the t say "i feel soooo much safer now that I'm way up here" You're really limited when you put an arboreal in a ten-gallon. I'm just doing the best I can. Pox, if you have any suggestions, or you build arboreal hides differently I would love to hear. I also don't understand what you mean by the entrance being so close to the exit. Could you explain please?I know RobC does this but I always wonder about the sensibility of putting an arboreal species in what could be a terrestrial hide, and with the entrance so close to the "exit".
Ah,ok. To be honest, I'm not really concerned. Moving the hide back would mean she has to move 8 inches instead of 5. I could be wrong but I don't see her flying out of the cage every time the door opens. I've opened it several times already and she hasn't shown any desire to make a break for it thus far. Again, with a 10 gallon, I'm working writhe the space I have. Do you suggest making the hide entrance face the back of the cage? I could be wrong but I believe a 10g is big enough for her. If she repeatedly escapes when the door opens, I will adjust accordingly, but again, I'm confident this won't be an issue.I believe he is referring to the opening of the hide being so close to the opening of the tank given pokies speed
