Thanks a ton for the advice, I've ordered some stuff from Amazon that came today, I've rebuilt the enclosure. Though I do think the bark is too tall? Maybe? I took the advice from ur last post about putting it vertical.Once it settles in, it will make use of a hide. Even if it doesn't though, at least you have offered one. You may find, that once you have reorganised the enclosure into a proper arboreal setup and have left your t time and space to settle in, that its behaviour will adjust.
If you can, get a taller piece of cork bark about just over 1/2 to 2/3rds the height of the enclosure. Then you can keep this one for your next terrestrial tarantula! Oh there will definitely be another...
I would definitely throw away that heat lamp. It is for reptiles, not tarantulas and could actually harm/kill your avic by overheating and dehydrating it. Not to mention that spiders abhor lights of any sort shone directly into their enclosures. Glad you've had the sense not to use it! Not everyone realises they are bad though, especially when going with bad advice from petshops...
The thermometer I bought is just to keep an eye on the room temperature.

Update 1/1/20 4:33PM - the T spun a small about of web inside the bark tube, hope that's good!
