Tank too short?

I'm wondering if a 3.5" tall tank would be fine to house a 6.5"-7" LP. I'm mainly concerned about molting issues that might arise. I asked a question along these lines a while back, but I just want to make sure she's fine in there.

It could even be lower. May be a little cramped for it, but that can work. Personally though, I'd do 5-6", just to give it a little leg room ;)

I'm on the look out for a larger tank anyways (maybe a display tank?), I just want to make sure she'll be fine in there if she molts since she's due for one (it's been about two or three years).

Probably will be fine :D As long as she has a good burrow and moves some sub, she'll have plenty of space.

Probably. How tall is your cage without sub? Younmay be able to get away with an inch-half inch, since it doesn't like to burrow or use her hide. Pics are appreciated, but a large KK would probably do the job if you're desperate. Those low enclosures are better for scorps IMO.

Pictures in the first post would have made this so much simpler.
