Just would like to see what everyone's temps are at. Also could provide a somewhat good source of info for people new in the hobby.

Slings/small juvies: 86-90 day/83-86 night
Older: 70-80 day (depends on season and temps. outside)/65-79 (depends on season and temps. outside)

All the tarantulas in my T room gets the same temp regardless of what size they are. It's usually 80-82 during the day and 76-80 at night. There is the occasion where it can go a bit higher or lower depending on extreme outside temp.

Summer days 75-80, nights low 70's

Winter days mid 70's, night 70ish, high 60's during a cold front. I use a space heater in the spider room, as I haven't turned on the furnace in years.

Space heater is on my potential "need" list for this coming winter. This will be the first year in our new home for T's an i keep them in our sunroom which we keep alot warmer then the rest of the house. In winter im not sure how cold it'll be so time will tell

80-90 during the summer
65-75 during the winter

My T room and server room are synonymous, so I usually have a free source of heat.

In Summer it's only a question of what the weather here offers, full door/window open for life :pompous:
mostly the range is Day 24° to 28° C and Night 22° to max 24° C

In Winter I rely only on the normal heathing system... Day 23° to max 25° C Night (drop) 20/21° C

Here in Scotland my temperatures are always controlled via central heating. Even in summer :shifty:

In summer I keep my Ts 22-27C
In winter 18-24C

76-80 during the day and 74-78 during night. In the winter it's usually just a couple degrees lower.

Be aware that temps in the low-mid 60's can cause problems with slings and low elevation tropicals of any size. Molting can be dangerous at those temps. I've lost juvenile/subadult OW arboreals at 60 when my space heater died. I now keep a back up.

If your room is cool, keep the most delicate species higher off the ground, where the air is a little warmer.

Summer through fall, its dependent on the ambient air temp outside...I don't air condition...temps run from 72-92 during the day, and never drop below 70 at night.

Late fall through late spring, I run an oil filled space heater and keep the room at a pretty consistent 80. My growth rates improve dramatically in winter.
