I was wondering, are big Liphistius species' able to be kept communally?

3"/4" ones? I thought that in the wild bigger ones usually have several meters (sometimes even more) separating each other, as their triplines can spread out quite far.People have definitely kept them communally without problems, but there’s always a chance of things going wrong (especially if you don’t provide lots of floor space).
Maybe they do. I recall someone posting on here about a communal tank but I can’t find it now. I think @basin79 has some experience with these.3"/4" ones?

I have 3 Liphistius sp but they're all different and kept singularly. I know they've been kept communally and are kept communally by a member/s on here. They'd need to be given plenty of space though as sometimes they wander quite a way out of their burrows for food as slings, even if they're not always successful like my L. sp Khao Luang sling here.
