I gave mine 7 inches of subtrate because I've read that the H. Lividum is an obligate burrower, meaning it's happiest when it's underground. Not to say that your setup is any better or worse for the Lividum than mine, this is just what I've concluded based on all available information.Originally posted by pelo
Why don't you try a shelter?I give mine only about 2-3 inches of substrate and a shelter.I pile the substrate all around the shelter only leaving an opening leading into the shelter.She goes into it and spins a light web around the opening.

you make an excellent point there dude.
many people have completely different reasons for keeping any kind of animal as pets.
personally, i love beautiful animals, but i only want PETS that are docile and easily handled. hence, i won't ever get an aggressive T or any other animal.
some people collect Ts, etc. as more specimens as opposed to pets. they like to recreate comfortable environments for the animal and part of the joy of having them is simply to HAVE them.
then again, you get same as above except they like display animals so they don't necessarily cater to the animals' greatest happiness or comfort so they have them visually available at all times.
i'm personality 1 & 2 type as listed above here.
however, to each their own.
