The subject says it all. I'd like to see how you guys set up your arboreal Ts. The large kritter keepers seem like they would be too small for a large arboreal. For those of you who put your rectangular kritter keepers on their side, how do you prevent the substrate from spilling out of the lid? Let's see those arboreal setups. :)

Here is a pic of my arboreal set-up. These are terariums that I purchased. The dimensions of each section is about 5.5"wX12"hX10.5"d. I have my Avic's in these, my largest one is a 5"+ A. urticans. (The one that is dried out is currently vacant)

Front view pic. Basically a Pet Pal on its side with the vents in the lid taped up so the substrate doesn't fall out. I place a piece of cork bark in the back, about an inch or two of substrate in the bottom, a small water dish for humidity, and a few small fake leaves/vines for decoration and to give it something to web on, climb on, etc. Seems to work for my arboreals.

My 1/2" P irminia resides in here.

Don't crucify me for the cotton wool - it's changed daily, and for now is the only reliable way of keeping up a reasonable humidity for one so small :)

Here is my A. Avic's home.
A little substrate, a hide, a water dish. a few fake leaves.
She has not made a web yet, just a carpet on the peat.

Most of her time is spent on the side of the jar, she is out of view
in this shot. Her favorite spot is under the lid:)

My pinktoe is about 3" now, in that picture it was about 2 1/2" it just molted yesterday, so now it's at the 3" mark. I'm not sure what size tank it is, i got it from a friend, but i believe it's 2.5 gallons? Maybe, it's 5 gallons, I'm really not sure, sorry, but it's a pretty nice set up. I got it for free!! Good friends i have, right? haha. good luck with your setup.

Very blurry and bad pic of Shadow's home.
Yes, I think she's still alive.

That glass set-up is great, that gives the T tons of room to climb around. It also isn't an eye sore like the Kritter keepers can be.

How large is your A. hurriana, Do you have any pics of her?

I have seen similiar items on Ebay, do a search for "terrarium".

It is a nice looking home!

Hmm, I'd think she'd make her web higher up though.
