So i got an enclosure for free, it`s like 20x20x30cm. It should be good for adult c.versicolor. But is it bad to put 7cm sling in there? like if i tong feed it it`ll find food. My friend told me they`ll stress a lot and die, but dont they live in the wild well enough ?Halp, thx

Arrange the cage so that they're is a natural place for it to spin a web. Place feeders therein.

Psst: The web is the actual enclosure size. The cage is simply to keep the cat away.

Think Castle versus fortified walls surrounding it. But yes, that's a pretty big cage!!

I don’t see anything wrong you’re T no longer a sling at 7 cm IMO that would be a juvenile and in a couple of moults will be fine for that enclosure I have 2cm H Gigas slings in 10cm x 10cm round containers that’s 5 times there size so with that ratio you could put you’re T in an enclosure that’s 35cm x 35cm x 35cm. It’s all keepers preference most keep in smaller containers so they can fit more enclosures in the same place and it makes feeding easier but you’re T and that size enclosure is totally fine
