"I just recieved my first Antilles Pinktoe spiderling a week ago. Its no bigger than a dime. I noticed that it was the most active of the 5 spiderlings that came with the order (King Baboon, Chaco Golden Knee, Brazilian Red and White, and Brazilian Salmon-Pink Birdeater). So far, it seems to be doing well. I have it in small circular plastic container that is ~3 times taller than wide. Its an empty Parmesean Cheese container. I drilled many small holes all over the outside for ventilation with a moto-tool and several in the top cap. The snap top features makes it easy to add food and water. I placed a small branch in the container for climbing and turned the small deli cup, used for shipping the spiderling, upside down on the top of the branch. It has webbed up the inside of the deli cup with several strands attached to the branch. It seems to spend most of its time up there. I'll move it to a larger container when it grows a bit. I keep it on top of the fridge, towards the backside, as there is a noticable current of warm air from the condenser coils. This situation provides off and on ventilation as the fridge cycles and the warm air flows up and then across the top due to the cabinetry. For high humidity, I add about a cc of water per day to the bed-a-beast substrate, and spray the outside of the deli cup with a syringe, where a few drops of water pool up along the upside down cup ridge. We'll see if this configuration provides the humidity and ventilation for good husbandry. "
