The background is very cool. The first pic looks very realistic.

With such a sweet home, he should have no problems getting a girlfriend.

Mike do you have electric heat where you live?
Any fish tanks in the same room as the spider?

I'm not sure but i think that t's drinking have someting to do with humidity. The reason i think this is because at my house i keep 2 spiders in my animals room(with a big fish tank and wood & oil furnace). These spiders are never seen drinking. At the house I rent(because of were i work at the moment) we have electric heat and no fish tanks(no water evaporating in the air) and the 2 spiders i have there are dirnking all the time. I think or though that there may be a connection.

He is having a drink because he is fresh out of a molt...pretty much all my spiders including my blondi are kept on the dry side with a water dish...they do well...I have a humidifier in the basement if it gets to dry....the basement temps are about 70 to 73 degrees as well..

I had just transferred my 2" P. irminia to a slightly larger enclosure earlier that day. She went straight to work building a new web home, but I guess she got a little overworked and needed a nice long drink. I hadn't misted her new home yet, so it must have been a bit too dry.

Just thought I would post this, since many members say that they never see their Ts drinking. My A. seemani & G. pulchra drink fairly often, probably due to the fact that I keep the substrate in their tanks mostly dry.

Thanks

Now that he's finished building and wallpapering (with coconut fiber) his new home, mine is back to not wanting to be seen again. In the second pic, you can still see his underside.

I couldn't see the pic, so I'll assume you are talking about the same huge plastic pretzel jars that I've seen around.
Please don't laugh at lack of artistic ability and poor sense of proportion, but here are a couple of silly ideas that I would probably try.

First: Attach a platform high up in the jar (this is a plastic jar I hope). I would attach a thick block of wood to the bottom of the platform with hot glue, then use long screws from the outside into the block of wood. Here is a rough, and I mean very rough, sketch of what I am talking about without the support block. The platform would have to be pretty large for a 6" T. You would also want the platform to have low sidewalls or a recess so the water dish couldn't be knocked off by the T.


Second: Cut a rectangular slot towards the bottom of the jar, but leaving side and bottom "tabs". Then use a slightly oversized (top to bottom) strip of plastic from another of the same type of jar, that can be slid in and out with the tabs holding it. This one would also require that the jar to be plastic. The dotted line represents the cut out portion


It's very late and this is just a quick brainstorming session. By tomorrow I may think that these ideas are both ridiculous.

Enjoy
Kevin

Very nice. By the way, the jar is plastic. The irminia is only 1.5" right now but i am preparing for the future, plus if it works good then i will buy some more containers.

thanks for the ideas.
