In ground or above ground.

Im really struggling here. I started with an in ground pool. The Archetect and General Contractor told me however (after he finished the excavation) that trying make my Exo Terra 12x12x12 connect in a functional and asthetic way would almost double the price of this already several thousand dollar project. So he refilled the hole in the ground and has laid the concrete pad for an above ground.

The problem is I only have Brachypelmas... and to make this setup work Im going to have to switch to the taller 18 inch Exo Terra... even then the T will have to climp up about 4 feet of tubing... (The architect would kill me for calling it tubing... He calls it an Arachno Friendly Eco Ramp.) Well... Brachys aren't really arboreal. Will they be able to make it up the ramp to get to the pool?

Then there is the whole humidity issue... I mean this Arachno Friendly Eco Ramp conducts the humity from the pool into the environment... And what about Chlorine?

Anyway, any input would be much appreciated. I need to get this figured out asap. The city inspector is going to be out to sign off on the permit next week.

Oh one more thing... It took awhile but I finally got my B. Vagans to settle down enough to let me get his eight floaties on his legs. (The B. Emilia were all teasing him.) What is your experience with leaving these on? I want him to be able to freely access the pool but Im afraid of him getting into the pool without his floaties on... If I leave them on will it hinder his ability to molt?

Again... thanks in advance!

hey guys.. sorry to barge in but my thread is starting to heat up. :eek: i just wanted some opinions.. not a fight. newbies rely on your experiences and expertise. you guys know more about these stuff than us noobs. we need help. so if its possible lets keep the thread helpful.

so far you guys have been a big help. :D thanks brian. i took the advice on putting the slings on a dark area. though i provided it with a hide so that sometimes when he feels like he going in to his room he does use the hide. also kept the hide secure so that he wont be crushed... *missing legs are just sad*:( putting a hole in the substrate works well too. with some of my slings. water dish doesnt seem to fit my delicups. :wall:

-- my slings doesnt seem to like porn though... :?

they are way to young for porn. they shouldnt be allowed to watch that stuff till they are sub-adults. besides they are way to small to push the keys down anyway.
sounds like your doing everything you can for them. just keep reading and asking questions. im sure you'll do great. i have had spiders in the past and then got interested in other things. then about 2 years ago i bought a rosea female and three months later i went to feed her and she had an eggsack. i knew nothing about this at all so i let her hatch them then removed her. from the time i seperated the slings till i got rid of most of them was about 3 months. i only lost 9 out of 198. one of which escaped and my cat found it first. they are alot tougher than you think.

hey guys here's a list of my collection. just started about 4 months ago. :D if ever anyone finds a T that i own that needs special care i'd really appreciate it if you could give me some advice. so far. i just put hides and place them in a dark room. feeding would be 4 times a week for the slings. (i put pinhead crickets the size of their abdomen) and molts regularly. misting would be 6 times in a week. * i live in the philippines where its really hot!* and water dishes for some. :D help would be greatly appreciated.
