So the kid is still bugging me for a tarantula... Petland has in some fancy red mexican (something something) etc for $179 + tax so I passed (haha not spending close to $200 for an animal I dont want lol!!!) If I can convince the kid to wait for spring so we can go to the reptile show he can get something there. Don't need any thing fancy. He wants a simple black fuzzy spider (who doesnt???) So I found this really neat idea where you turn a fish tank on it's side and make a plexi glass door. I got a sheet of plexi glass at the restore and some hinges. Just have to get some thumb latches and silicon to attach it. Need to grind the screws down too. Kinda got delayed when I cut open my finger and needed 4 stitches... Yay... Is 10"x16" enough floor space for a tarantula? Here's what I have done so far (human monster #4 found my sharpies...) Door closed Door open So if it's not good for a T, I'll put a baby leo in it until it grows a bit. I have lots of plexi left over and picked up a nice tall 15-20 gal for $10 at Petland. Thats going to have the same idea/door done so I can move Hunter my current Leo into it. Then her tanks empty I have a 30 gal too that I hope to make a door for. My jigsaw works better to cut then my xacto knife so going to save my fingers!
