Ive been asked alot about my enclosures I use and my room. So I thought I would start a thread on the enclosures I use and how to make some on your own. First I'll start out with my room and add different things every week.

Heres my room about a year ago...

Heres my room right now...

If you have any questions or want to see something, feel free to leave a comment.

That's a beautiful enclosure. I love Hannibal. I like the feisty ones. The way he shot out from that hide like "Raaahh!!" What I really liked is that you used an over sized container to cup him, which seemed to stress him out less imo. Trying to slip the lid under a container that is the same size as the t when you've got legs going everywhere, is a recipe for a trapped tarsus I'm stealing that idea for the future.

I really dig the translucent expo style containers for your juvies. Where did you buy them and what size?

This thread is to touch on cleaning glass for your enclosures. Many have said how hard and tedious this is but my method is fast and efficient while I'm feeding my beasts anyway.

Step #1 I feed my spider...a feeding spider tends not to care what you are doing.

Step #2 Cover its burrow or hide with a heavy wet cloth. Dont forget if they have a back door exit cover that too. Use tongs when doing this...the spider may mistake you for a extra meal.

Step #3 Spray down the poo with water...dont be stingy.

Step #4 Scrape the poo with a razor blade or rubber scraper...a old credit card will work. Scrap everything down to the bottom and wipe up with a wet paper towel.

Step #5 Wipe down glass with wet paper towel. You may need to use more water and another towel.

Step #6 After your glass is clean pick up any bolus or feeder remnants before removing the wet cloth. I highly recommend using tongs for this.

That's it....takes me around 2-3 minutes per enclosure. I do plastic enclosures with a plastic scrapper or credit card.
