I did a thing.

So, I was at Petco with my sister to get some cat litter and what not. I figured I'd look in their critter section out of curiosity but, I didn't expect much since they usually only have some beardies, hermits and maybe a ball python. Well, surprise! They had 3 tarantulas, Avicularia avicularia. Only problem is all 3 were crammed together into one tiny display case. So, after almost a year of having my first tarantula, I did a thing.

I'd appreciate any tips! I know she's arboreal as opposed to my Chromatopelma cyanopubescens.

She will need a set up like this...

Keep it at between 65-70. Feed it no more then once a week . Most importantly make sure it has lots of ventilation and a full water dish.
Good luck

I got one of those kits they sell with a screen lid. It's taller than wide. It's what I have so far but, I'm not happy with it. Seems cramped :(. I may get a 10 gallon and convert it. What do y'all think?

I keep a few of my pinktoes in 12" tall enclosures. They are a little cramped but do fine. The pinktoes I have in large tanks only occupy a small corner so it seams a waste of space.
