    It’s Chicago...it’s -10 degrees outside in the winter lmao. I’ll figure something out, I already rehoused her in a different enclosure with more humidity and more substrate, I wish I had other things to use other than coconut fiber but from what I’ve gathered from others it should be fine as long as ya keep it humid. As long as she’s not climbing up and falling anymore. That was the main agenda.

    Loving the old school Nintendo myself as well...I still use mine regularly...mostly rbi and golf....

    Now it looks cluttered....being that I am the lord master of all that is cluttered*, I recognize it...lol.:D

    If you want it bad enough, you can find the space...you just needs to be creative re-arranging everything. When done, it will likely look better and you will be glad you did it...I always am.

    I had a similar issue moving from a house to an apartment...real hard to find places for everything sometimes.

    Good luck, I think you should be able to find something that works.

    Up here in the north, the floor would likely be a cold place int he winter.....fine for summer when its hot and humid, but I keep all mine off the floor in winter except my rose hair.

    Have you thought of erecting a small shelf somewhere?

    I have, however I can’t damage the walls because I’ll get yelled at. So command shelfs are off.

    But for the t, they really are great enclosures...fancy enclosures are all about us looking....generally tubs are as good as it gets for the animal though. Easy to vent in any way required or desired, I love that.

    This one could work: https://www.joann.com/smart-store-p...le=best-sellers&sz=54&start=55&prefv1=Storage

    This is the one I use: https://www.joann.com/snapware-smar...e=best-sellers&sz=54&start=109&prefv1=Storage

    Note - with Joann's you can have them ship it to the store for free and pick it up there rather than pay for shipping. There's probably others that would work if you look through the storage section on the website.

    I recently rehoused mine (around 2") to a 4.5L tub (the sub is deeper at the back end where the hide is, I like to leave some space to accommodate all the sub they dump in front of the burrow when they excavate), went straight into the starter burrow I provided.

    I am not sure if this has been pointed out, but this is not a 'rain forest' species so it should not be kept as damp as - for example - a Chilobrachys sp. It could be that you keep the substrate too wet and that your spider is a bit uneasy because of it. I use coco fibre as well, without a problem. If you pack it down really tightly (like using your body weight when filling the enclosure) it will continue to hold its form after it dries out. Ideally, the substrate is only slightly damp, but I let it dry out before I add more water.
