Please help, I've got 4 T's that have grown large enough to move into more permanent housing, but I'm not sure about the size and type. All 4 require higher humidity levels than any of my other T's so I'm worried about using a standard tank because of mold growth. The 4 I'm rehousing are a Lasiodora difficilis, a Lasiodora papahybana, an Avicularia avicularia, and an Avicularia versicolor. I already have 2 exo-terra tanks with the front ventilation (one measures 12x12x12 the other is 8x8x12) and I have 2 regular 10 gallon tanks. Is 8x8x12 large enough for either of the Avicularia? And is 12x12x12 large enough for the Lasiodora difficilis? I know the Lasiodora papahybana will grow really big (he's only about 3" right now), he'll need a larger tank later. How do you keep the humidity levels high in a regular tank without getting mold? I can always buy more of the tanks with front ventilation. Do they really work, as far as preventing mold? The size of the tank is also a concern. I want them to have enough room, but I'm also running out of space for all my babies so I need to use the smallest tank possible, while still giving them enough room.
