Default Monkfield Nutrition enclosure for smithi

As my (2nd) acrylic enclosure was falling apart I decided to give one of the new Monkfield Nutrition enclosures a try. I know they're not aimed at inverts but I think it makes a pretty good tarantula enclosure.

Got this one via ebay for £34.95 delivered and is the smallest they make at 18" long.

That's a really nice looking enclosure
Only ventilation might be an issue for me.

If you need more and you're a bit handy you could add more vents. It's just like adding vents to a vivarium, just on a smaller scale.

That enclosure looks lovely tbh, I would say to remove the glass top and replace it with mesh for ventalation though, and maybe make some side vents if you had time, Looks kinda cool, and I will be stealing your idea

Thats a dry loving species so it doesnt really need any extra vents as the sub will never get wet enough to cause any problems. Set up Looks good though.
Ally and Stelios like this.

The vents are designed to take a water dish and occasionally messy snake, they should be fine with all but the proper high humidiy species

I like it, looks really good!
