Yes an acrylic enclosure is a great way to go . They are expensive but I think they look very nice . The problem with a glass aquarium is that is avics require good cross ventilation and aquariums aren't conducive to that . Also if you have a screen top on that tank then that is bad for your T . They can get hung up on the screen and become injured . Tall clear cylindrical spaghetti containers are an economical alternative to the "nice" acrylic enclosures , however you have to drill the vent holes yourself .

Alright I'll order that one but will my t be okay until it arrives here? Probably like 4 days total... It's already been in there for like 2.. I'll attach a pic of what it's in right now.

It will manage. I would put the half log on its end, with the hole to the glass or plants. That way, the spider can at least get a little cover. Keep a good eye on it though, that screen can do some serious damage. What some people do as a TEMPORARY measure is taping the outer rim of the screen from the inside (sticky side away from spider!), creating a barrier for the spider so it can't easily reach the screen from the sides. Don't know how well this works, but it is maybe worth a try.

Alright thank you and the one encloser that I showed that I'm ordering it's large enough and everything right? Even for when it's an adult?

How big is the t you are putting in it? Without this info we cant tell you which size or if either is good. The larger one is great, but ONLY if its an adult.

It is probably about 3 to 3 and a half inches maybe a little less or more but it still has some time to grow. Here's a not so good picture haha

Why would you setup a terrestrial styled home for an arboreal T? Are you aware that Avics are arboreal? I don't believe you know this. Please do A LOT of research on this forum, NOT CARESHEETS for Avics. Caresheets KILL tarantuals, esp Avics.

There are 6 enclosures in that picture, which one are you buying? I can't assume you uploaded the correct description in the second image.
