What do you keep your Avic slings in?

So I have 2 versicolor slings atm, and I pondered what I should keep them in. I ended up putting them in small glass spice jars with Spaghnum moss at the bottom and a bunch of holes in the lid. I keep seeing them hanging out on the lids of their enclosures so I am wondering if there is enough ventilation. Would anyone like to share pics of their enclosures for their avic slings?

I keep mine in the fridge.

Kidding.

I keep mine in either small vials, or acrylic cubes from Michael's.

Vials have holes in the lids, cubes have holes drilled through the tops.

I've tried the whole cross-ventilation thing too and haven't noticed much difference, but that's only in my own experience.

I melted two sets of holes in those acrylic cubes from Michaels that I purchased...two near the bottom (across from each other) and two near the top...none in the lid...

Hope it works...don't want Michaels to run out of cubes...:rolleyes:
