This is a quick start on a journal thread for this viv setup that I have been working on for a little while now. I already have plants and most everything else in it.
My intention is to keep a single Avicularia sp. tarantula in here. Avicularia are South American/Caribbean arboreal spiders and among the most attractive of tarantulas. Here is a Wikipedia, Creative Commons picture of A. versicolor...
I was working on the setup some more tonight and got a quick picture here of the top rear panel with fan, knob handle, hygrometer and thermometer.
I am trying to source an adult or sub-adult spider to introduce to the tank. I haven't settled with any particular species, but that A. versicolor would be a nice one to use.
Way cool, Devin! I'm digging the tarantula, bro!! I used to keep Rosehairs for a while. Very gentle, and their legs almost felt like Q-tips when they would be walking around on your hands or arms. I love the set up!!
