No, I don't think that is too high at all. At 2" it should have no problem in there, even where it comes to feeding it. You should be able to drop the crickets or whatever in and the Suntiger will find them. You should have a piece of cork bark or something for it to web to. You may even want to put just a little more substrate in just to help with the humidity. Good Luck:)

I have mine in what I think was a old pickel jar.So its about 6-8" tall with about 1" substrate and since I work at a Plant nursery for my arborals I just take a plastic pot and cut out a tall wide strip of the plastic and use that for a lean-to.I mist there jars every couple of days or so. They also need good ventilation so plenty of holes in my lids.
