do you think substrate for millipedes is fine for the T's? that's the only substrate I have on hand. If i remember correctly, millipede substrate consists of decaying plant matter and fungiI agree with @Walker253 , these enclosures are for arboreals, while your spiders are terrestrials. You should put them into a cup with less heights. Provide them enough substrate to burrow, with a smaller hide. Give anchor points for the P. murinus, they are heavy webbers. In the mentioned 16 oz cup you can easily place a water dish for them.
I don't have any experience with this kind of substrate, but if it is free of any pesticides, I assume it is not dangerous for T's. We should wait for the more experienced people to chime in.do you think substrate for millipedes is fine for the T's? that's the only substrate I have on hand.

They are not jumping. They are falling. They should be rehouseed into much lower height Enclosures as others have said. This will save your current Spiders from fall injuries as well as free up those Enclosures for Arboreal species.I decided to check on my T's 3 in the morning and saw that my Bumba Cabocla and OBT likes to climb to the top of the enclosure and just fall or jump off. My OBT is a bit less than an inch and B.Cabocla is almost one third of the size of my OBT. Is this normal? Should I be worried? View attachment 243182 View attachment 243183
