In the past I have used fish aquariums for setups for my tarantulas. I would like to get back into keeping tarantulas at the moment I currently have none.
What do you most of you use to house your tarantulas in?


thanks,

John

The thread that Goomba posted will help you out alot, but I'm sure you can still do what you did in the past. Many people use fish aquariums as enclosures. I personally prefer plastic storage boxes, since I have limited space.

My arboreal T Cube

Here's my newest Tarantula Cube. This one is 12"X12"X24" (ID) with an acrylic top that opens for feeding and watering. But the front can swing open for spring cleaning. The walls are insulated and one wall has a built-in heating element on a temp controller. I have a 5" female Singapore Blue (Cyriopagopus sp.) coming to make it her home.

I have some wide 4 gallon (I think) tupperwear containers. They are slightly taller than my tarantulas's legspan but wide as anything. Just make sure to ventilate them properly.

I have three ten gallon tanks that house three different T's. I will be subdividing one tank soon into three sections soon. This will allow me to consolidate space though I try not to think linearly it terms of space. When I run out of surface area I go vertical. I put in shelves that can support a fair amount of weight. I make sure the brackets that hold the shelving are secured to studs and not simply anchored to the drywall.

so if you have an "all glass aquarium" it can be used and if you want more than one T....and you will...it can be subdivided to save space.
