Here's a recent picture of my Xenesthis immanis. Currently in a 4 x 4 x 5 inch enclosure. Should I rehouse soon or wait for another molt?

Nice setup. I would go for a bigger hide that allows your tarantula to go in deeper without emerging from the other side. It looks a bit like a tunnel now, but it should be more like a cave.

Yes, I'm a slumlord lol. How's this setup for the new home. It's 11 x 7 x 6 inches
Better, don’t forget water dish.
Remember Ts generally like tight spaces for a home. Need a hide that is tight, but not too tight. Can’t give you better than subjective terms. Just something you observe over time.

So the rehouse went well yesterday! T seems happy and I gave him/her a cricket and it was taken quick. About a water dish.... I always provide a water dish but this T always seems to bury them. The dish I provided yesterday was buried this morning. I do mist the enclosure (very lightly) every few days. What kind of dish can I get so the T doesn't bury it?
