how small are these deli cups. would 1 of those little cups that you get at fast food places for ketchup work. just an idea. i guess it depends on how small the spiders are.

At that size I wouldn't worry to much about giving it a hide, just make you don't keep it in an encloser that is not to large for it and it won't get stressed.

Deli cup suites

I have my slings in 16oz deli cups. Once the substrate dries a bit, they dig up their own little hides. You can pre-dig the substrate for them to get them started. You can also break a very small piece of cork bark.

I agree with D-man.. I've got tons of little slings in small small deli cups, and all i do for "hides" is get some SLIGHTLY wet moss on top of the substrate, and the T's make their own little hides....

no worries at all!

pce,

How big are these tiny T's?
If they are really tiny you can use tattoo ink cups:)
They are much smaller than condiment cups.

I third that when they are that small they pretty much make their own hides. But as a alternative the pieces or cork bark and ink cups are good ideas.

If you are going to put something in as a hide, just make sure it is something that will not mildew, a piece of corkbark or something plastic like everyone has said would work good. Other types of wood or natural items may mildew.
