I love this type of natural looking terrariums for our Ts. I saw that you have done the best mod for the Exo-Terras!!

Yes! When researching that seemed to be the first thing to do with those type enclosures,so ta da!😆
Thank you all of mine are bioactive,even the little Psued.sp.blue has some springtails and live moss.

Here is all my enclosures from the top. I have modded all from mesh to plexi. The long tank is actually light diffusing panel with plexi on top,as Beckii my B.hamorii is a bit small and could squeeze out the top yet. So I have a piece of plexi vented and secured with clips. 20200201_142924.jpg

I would add some porcellios or trichorinas (pill bugs) and earth worms. In conjunction with the springtails do a great job maintaining the substrate healthy. The pill bugs eat the mayor wastes, the springtail the rest and the earthworms keep the substrate oxigenated.

If you want to add some live plants my vote goes to the chamaedorea elegans and hedera helix for the vertical enclosure, and some small chamaedoreas and fern for the rest. They are very easy to keep alive and give that extra live touch to the enclosure.

My last vivarium from this week, I am waiting anxiouly fot the moss to grow xD IMG_20200128_103134.jpg

Are those exo terras lights? I was looking for one for my old setup, but was impossible to find one here.

Hey thank you kindly,much appreciated.
Awesome enclosures!! look amazing!
I like to design my enclosures around the inhabitants den. In the case of Pradesha I made her this tree structure out of 2 cork tubes,hot glue and sheet moss. It gives her 2 areas to access it from top or bottom,and the backside of it has a separately walled off chamber above the soil(also buried 2-3")
The second chamber only has one ground level entrance to give her a dark secure area to retreat,very little light can be seen. Screenshot_20200203-160834_Instagram.jpg

Here is the openings for her hide

Wasn't sure if this was the place to put this or not,but felt like it was good as any.
This is what I use in my aboreal tarantula enclosures as a water dish. Magnetic gecko food ledges. They blend right in. The one in my Poecilotheria metallica enclosure fits like a puzzle piece. IMG_20200218_210554_485.jpg 20200218_205731.jpg

I had to redo the den due to some snags,but I like this better for form and function. The back left corner is for a plant of some kind. Just going to fill it with my normal substrate.
Thanks for lookin!🤙 IMG_20200223_142126_713.jpg IMG_20200223_142126_705.jpg IMG_20200223_142126_704.jpg IMG_20200223_142126_719.jpg IMG_20200223_142126_703.jpg

I like to add leaves and wood around the entrance to burrows,it not only looks good,but serves a purpose to giving them places to easily hang webbing to tidy their place up as they see fit. In this case it also provided extra over hang cover by the mopani and leaf litter being packed into the dirt around the entrance.

So I totally was busy today,totally...
Went to my local hardware mart and got plexi cut. Added holes with soldering iron,aquarium silicone to get it friendly. 20200225_171008.jpg

Also,a cool picture of how I constructed the burrow for Cinnabari to live in.
