I have a juvenile l.parahybana, about 3.5". Would it be ok if i put it into a 24" tank because i keep upgrading its tank and its really expensive. The thing does,nt stop growing.

It will grow to around 10" so be prepared for that!

I would say 24" would be ok tho provided the depth of the tank was good as well.

:hmm: My smaller Para is 3 1/2" and is in a 18"x12"x8" faunarium and seems to do fine, and will stay in there forever now. I would've thought it would be fine in a 24" one :)

i keep my Theraphosa sp. (goliaths) in 18inch cubed tnkas at adult. plenty of room for growth still. theres more problems than benefits in putting the spider in such a big tank when so small
