Personally I'd use a multi branch piece of wood so that they have something to anchor their webbing on. I'd also put them in a larger enclosure as rehousing could be "interesting".

didnt make Invicta, it was my daughters birthday.

They should be easy at this stage, if not a little fast LOL
I used a tall faunarium for my colonies.
They aren't so easy to rehouse once they get larger.

They always are well behaved when they are little, they may run a bit but thats it, you wait til they get past an inch, they start to front you up then lol

Yup you tend to notice them getting less likely to run, and more likely to hide, thats when you know :) You may be lucky and have some nice quiet ones but i only have one quiet, the rest are bonkers lol

You forgot the suit of armour and a net lol
Hahha would be useful lol.
The top checklist is my one i use if i have to rehouse something mean, always in bathroom and always check it all first so it can't get out or lost lol

The rest of the stuff, i don't use, but there is always a first time lol

I rehoused my OBT for the first time yesterday as Ive mentioned before I have been a bit hesitant....

It ran up the bath up the wall across the ceiling, back into the bath and into its new enclosure in a matter of about 10 seconds I literally just stood there while he went crazy then he plodded into his new home almost like he knew what he/she should do.

Madness!
