New pink toe sling

Was at our LPS this weekend and noticed a new batch of Avicularia avicularia, Guyana Pink Toe slings.

We snagged a 1.25 in sling for $30. We have the sling in a 4x4x8 arboreal enclosure with vertical cork bark and about 2 in of substrate to hold humidity. The sling has been glued to the inside of the lid of the enclosure for 3 days... When should we worry?

When its laying on the ground you should worry.
It may take a while for it to web up it's new home. Sometimes they wait until they molt. I wouldnt worry as long as it has lots of ventilation and water it should be good to go.

The sling is moving around it's enclosure pretty regularly now and has eaten 2 large crickets, one every 3 days or so.

It has a bottle cap water dish that I keep full and I lightly mist 2 sides of the enclosure every few days. One side is near a heater so the T can regulate temp by moving closer to farther to the heated side.

Quick pics of sling and enclosure attached; it has a cricket in it's clutches. All 4 sides of the enclosure are ventilated as is the lid. There is about 2" of Coco fiber substrate and a cork bark section placed diagonally. It has barely started webbing.

I ordered an Exo Terra Nano Tall (8x8x12) as it's forever home for when it outgrows its current enclosure. My GBB is in ET Nano (not tall) and it seems to be working okay.
