    P. murinus communal setup

    i think it would be awesome to have a P. murinus communal setup. maybe one day when my soon-to-be makes me downsize my collection, i'll trade away my stuff and get some communals... hopefully *crosses fingers*

    I've got, like, 4 OBTs right now (not counting the one OBT I'm keeping as my own). ... could help get you started. They're not young, though.

    i just called around and got some estimates on plexi, and will be picking up the materials this week. i decided not to pair them in 2's, but will wait a couple of weeks and put all of them in. just makes it easier i guess. i'm going to go with a 3' by 3' by 2' high plexi/wood terrarium, peat, and fake plants. will write updates soon.

    thanks for asking!!!

    well, i've got a mini-communal-setup going on right now

    instead of putting all 10 in at one time (which requires building a terrarium), i'm putting 3 at a time in smaller tanks. as soon as the big terrarium gets built, i will just simply combine the 3 tanks of 3 spiders into one giant tank. so it's partially done . so far so good. about 2 weeks have gone by and nobody has been munched yet. i've seen some pretty good interaction, everyone has their own little niche but wanders around quite often. so far so good so i hope that trend continues!!!

    i don't know, it'll just take some time and very careful measuring/cutting. i'm trying to build a very nice aquarium/terrarium with a frame. everything has to be perfect. i'm also designing and building a 4-section hinged lid for safe and easy access. it could be a fun summer project
