    this is for people who use exos to house their Ts. How many have you kept them stock and how many of you swapped the screen for vented plexy or acrylic?

    I've left the screen on mine and never had a problem although I've never kept a T in one that needs high humidity.

    You keep differnt types in them as well. Ow ,nw, terrestrial ,arboral. Correct? Im using one for mind P.irmina 8xx8x12 the nano tall. I was thinking about going bigger for it. Also want to maybe get one for my obt. But I may use a 10gal for that one. To give it lots of room to keep it mellow

    I had a Pokie, a Psalmopoeus irminia and my OBT in them. The OBT was more arboreal than terrestrial, it seems to depend on how much substrate they are given as to how likely they are to burrow although mine started webbing at the top and then built herself a cave at the bottom.

    I
    gave my obt bunch of sub but it web funnel to the top and the the side. Kinda looks like a backward L. Still small around 3" but thinking about using a 10 gal for it to give it lots of space to live and not be upset with me going in to its home;). But it still stays at the bottom of the enclouser

    I was thinking of getting a 12x12x18 for the p.irmina since they get to be about 6" and can be hostile if bothered lol. Mine got upset when I tried to feed it. Stays in the sad pose for 30minutes upside down on the back wall
