New enclosures, first timer.

I got these 3x3x6 herpcult enclosures since I really liked the design. I have no tarantulas but have been researching for the last few weeks and want to get some for my birthday in about a month. Would these be alright for adult C. elegans or other dwarfs that like to bury?

For an adult that may reach 2" in size a 3"x3" is too small regardless of depth. Average C. elegans adult is 1.5"+ I'd be looking for a 6" cube or 8" round with about 4" of substrate.
You can start a 3/4" to 1" sling in that enclosure but you will most likely have to re-home it some day.

Here's a good read

EDIT: Sorry wrong link at first. This is not C. elegans but a similar size and burrowing characteristic T.

Here's a species-specific link

Okay, awesome I’ll be doing more research and making sure I have proper sized enclosures for all kinds of T’s
