To install lay aquarium with the opening facing up, Insert the Conversion kit in to the black rim opening of the tank. When it is set in, squeeze a small bead of Aquarium Safe 100% silicone sealant to the outer edges. Smooth with a finger or caulking tool. Wait 24-48 hours to fully cure, NEVER put your animal in without cleaning the tank fully. Be sure the smell of the silicone is gone before housing your animal. Always follow directions of the silicone sealant. Be sure to purchase Aquarium Safe Silicone.
My C. albostriatus needs deep substrate and an enclosure that maintains moisture. I used this as a lid instead of a door it's great! The ventilation hole placement makes it ideal to help maintain more moisture on one side of the enclosure than the other. The latching mechanisms also make this escape proof, and the lack of mesh or wire means the tarantula can't accidentally get its foot caught on anything.
This kit was easy to install and has made a perfect enclosure for my Avic.
If you're hesitating to get this conversion kit - don't. This is the best economical and display option on the market. Ive researched custom made glass and acrylic enclosures, but nothing beats this deal. I own other 5.5 and 10 gallon conversion kits for my pacman frogs. I think it's worth noting that a 5.5 gallon converted horizontally has the same floorspace as your typical 10 gallon unconverted aquarium.
Thank you for the fast service and and an excellent product.
Excellent for converting a small tank to be used for an arboreal tarantula.
