A sling vial (not quite so professional looking as Tony's, but the same idea - plastic canvas and hotglue are your friends):

And for the el cheapo minimalist in all of you, my P. nigricolor's salsa jar home (which is well burrowed although it's nigh impossible to see with this pic):

CM,
For your spiderling vials, I like your venting at the top. What did you use? and where did you get it. I have just puched holes and use some cotton fabric underneath, but I would prefer something more similar to yours.

It's plastic canvas sold for needlepoint and other crafts. You get it at, not surprisingly, craft stores like Michael's. It costs about $0.75 for a 8"x11" sheet of the stuff and comes in a variety of mesh sizes. You can cut and trim it all you want with ordinary scissors.

The only place I've seen those is Ebay. I snatched up seven as soon as I saw them.

Nylon Mesh for venting

As for the nylon mesh for venting a jar or container, you can get a roll of it at a paint store. It is used for spackaling and is about 3" wide.

Blessings, Al

I bought five of those small tarantula warning decals on ebay also. I was dissapointed in the small size of them. E. Anne from the ATS forums has redesigned them slightly and they come in a variety of sizes. I think Darrin from golden pheonix and even the ATS site might have them for sale. the ones I have are about 5x8"

I actually try to keep my setup interesting by having live plants in there with the substrates as mixtures of dirt and peat moss. The kind of plants I have can survive in any kind of enviroment, as long as I water them. Unfortunately, I'm a poor student who can't afford a camera for now.

This is my fanciest setup. The story behind all the broken pieces? Failed attempt at cutting a pot in half. After failing with a hack saw, I resorted to using a hammer.


I had it set up as a dual burrow type deal, but the only thing that ever used it were crickets. They'd run in and sit there until they died.

Scott,

What's in the top pet-pal on the right of the first picture? That's some nice webbing -- I like webbing.

Cheers,
Dave
