Where or what can I use for a sling enclosure. I don't want something big because one is 1 cm and the other is 0.5 cm. I have two arboreal and one terrestrial tarantula which i know how to make it's enclosure.

Which species are you getting? (Avicularia can usually be set up as arboreals from the beginning, but other arboreal slings often go through a terrestrial/burrowing phase.)

For terrestrial slings (@cold blood)

For arboreal slings (@cold blood)

General advice for caring for Avicularia or Caribena versicolor.

mainly about the pumpkin patch and the Brazilian red and white
I think both the Hapalopus (pumpkin patch) and Nhandu chromatus (Brazilian red and white) may burrow as slings, so you can probably do a typical terrestrial sling setup with extra depth for burrowing.

I haven't kept either of these, however, so feel free to wait for feedback from people who have (or search the forum for terms like "Hapalopus sling care/setup").

Pumpkins don't require anything special. I've owned 3. All raised in condiment cups, Thornton vials, and deli cups, and as adults either a KK or a ExoTerra Breeder Box, small.

The Brazilian, also nothing special needed there as well.
