DogFish Thought about this build today. I was in the local PETCo bring to talk myself out of another tank. When I noticed a commotion by the Herp selection. The crowd of people & employees were watch a Tarantula molt!!!

While I don't see myself every own a Tarantula, I must say it was very cool to observe. When escaped it's old skin? It was upside down and you could clearly see it's fangs and two nails? on the bottom of each foot. I also learned they spin a web to hide in during the molt.

hydrophyte Here's the cork round that I am using for the hide/trunk feature. I built up a bunchof Gorilla Glue around the top opening so that I would have something harder to drive the stainless steel screws into.



And here's the whole thing. I am considering sanding down the cork texture to make it more slender and with a texture more like the manzanita branches that I will also use. What do you think?

hydrophyte He is going to put an Avicularia metallica in it. I hope that the spider won't web up those plants. If it behaves like my avic in her 37g it will web in the top rear of the enclosure away from the bright lighting.

BeachBum2012 Absolutely stunning. Any idea what your client will house with your creation?

hydrophyte Thanks.

No this isn't my planting. I'm shipping it out tonight.

Have you ever thought of keeping cockroaches in these manzanita setups? Panchlora nivea would look really cool in one of these in a group.
Thank you! Yes I have thought about using roaches. I acquired a few different species and I have them here. Roaches are perhaps less useful for planted viv displays. Most of them just hide all day long and most will also nibble on any live plant. Panchlora might however be a good one to try because I think that they are somewhat more diurnal in their habits.

Once she is bigger I want to design a cage like yours. They are really amazing!
Oh I hope that your spider can recover. They really are cool animals. Avics are well-suited for use in planted viv setups.

There are many Tillandsia sellers online. I got this order from an etsy.com vendor who had low prices, a wide selection and lots of good reviews.

hydrophyte Here is thing planted up some more. This manzanita piece is not for me, but it gives an idea how this kind of planting with Tillandsia can look.
