I don't think this T is what I thought it was

Personally, I would give a GBB a little more space since they grow so fast. More floorspace and add a fake leaf for hiding or webbing anchor.
I'd also give it eco earth/coco peat as substrate instead of what looks to be vermiculite? Gbb likes it more dry, even as slings. I'm hoping it was an honest mistake, but it takes quite some ignorance from a breeder to mistake a Lp sling for a GBB sling.
:D

No! Sorry lol. The new one comes in tomorrow.

I was referring back to my question on if it's fine to just switch the spiders.

I haven't read anything on that.

Depends on the size of the new T really. If it were me, I would at the very least change out the substrate.

That setup is fine. I kept my GBB slings in those little gerber baby food containers.

I would give the GBB some more anchor points for its webbing. I don´t believe something bad will happen if you use the substrate over again, but if you want to be on the safe side, change it. Remember to keep it rather dry for a GBB. Good luck!

Oh. Haha. I was like "What is this dude talking about"!?

I would say they are great. But, I only got one in my H. albostriatum's enclosure. She decided to fill it up and web all over it. Here I thought she was going to burrow. She hasn't even attempted to burrow.
