The AeroVent Arboreal Glass Tower is crafted for arboreal species like jumping spiders, praying mantises, and small tarantulas, merging functionality with aesthetic appeal to create a "Spood heaven." This tower features a user-friendly design with easy-access doors and an efficient interior that simplifies routine tasks such as feeding and cleaning, making pet care effortless and quick.


Visit the Arboreal Glass Towers page to explore the similarities and differences between the AeroVent and LightVent enclosures, designed to meet arboreal species' unique needs.


Key Features of the AeroVent Glass Tower:


Our enclosures are made from high-quality glass, which reduces optical distortion and scratches compared to acrylic. This enhances photo and video clarity and ensures excellent visibility.


Three Access Points:

  • Top Access: The removable top glass is primarily used during the setup and seldom opened afterward to avoid disturbing your pet’s habitat. A ventilated plastic plate can be used instead for additional airflow.
  • Bottom Access: This model features a removable tray with a watering hole, allowing easy substrate hydration without always opening the enclosure. Alternatively, a ventilated bottom plate can be used between the glass core and tray.
  • Rear Access: It has two 15mm ports for efficient feeding and hydration and optional attachments for enhanced functionality. For enclosures 8cm and taller, we offer a magnetic access rear door.


Advanced Ventilation System: In the AeroVent design, the stack effect drives the cross-ventilation, utilizing finely spaced ventilation lines—0.45mm wide on the rear and 5mm apart on the bottom sides. This arrangement ensures high airflow, essential for your pet's health and prevents tiny spiderlings from escaping. Additionally, using an optional ventilated bottom plate with the enclosure enhances airflow further and protects the bottom tray from organic debris, allowing for easy maintenance. This setup is particularly beneficial for securing decorations at the bottom while maintaining a bottom tray. For a detailed exploration of our ventilation efficiency, please refer to our article on why ventilation lines instead of holes or meshes.

Humidity Control: The AeroVent's humidity is primarily influenced by two factors: the room's ambient humidity and the moisture released from the bottom tray. Our advanced ventilation system effectively balances humidity and airflow, preventing mould while ensuring a healthy environment.


Although traditional misting methods are effective and easily applied through the ports or door, they are generally only necessary for species with very high humidity needs. For most species acclimated to North Canadian climates, such as Bold spiders, maintaining a moist substrate and providing access to a drinking water source, like tiny wet cotton, watering jars, or the occasional mist, is sufficient.


If you don’t need the bottom tray and prefer a simple bottom, check out the LightVent Glass Tower. It has more viewing glass area and higher airflow, which benefits species that don’t require too high a humidity requirement. 

Bottom Tray Features and Maintenance: The removable bottom tray, secured with magnets, features a side watering hole to facilitate easy substrate rehydration using a pipette, minimizing disturbance to your spider. The bottom tray supports various inorganic substrates for humidity control. Regular cleaning and substrate replacement are recommended to maintain optimal conditions. It's essential to maintain the substrate's moisture level—enough to be damp but not wet or saturated, to avoid drowning risks and ensure a safe habitat for your spider.


Regularly clean the tray to remove organic waste and prevent decay; wash the bottom tray once in a while to put new substrate. Organic waste eventually accumulates at the bottom and can decompose. This is why we suggest you don't place decorations directly on the bottom tray; instead, keep the tray removable and attach decorations to the glass or plastic frame/wall with magnets or safe adhesives. You can also use a ventilated bottom plate in conjunction with a tray.


The 3mm-wide hole in the tray might enable small juvenile or baby-jumping spiders to slip through. It's strongly advised to consistently fill the tray with sufficient substrate to cover this hole or seal the hole with cotton fibres if not required. 


You can purchase additional bottom substrate trays here. 


Substrate Recommendations: Use inert or inorganic substrates to avoid mould and bacterial growth. Dust-free coconut fibre, sphagnum moss, perlite, and vermiculite all work well. Avoid soil, as it encourages mealworm burrowing and can lead to moisture issues. Paper towels and cotton are alternatives but require frequent changes.


  • Size and Customization: Eight sizes to accommodate pets from spiderlings to adult stages. You can choose between glass or vented plastic covers or both, as well as an included rear door or no door. This variety of options empowers you to create the perfect habitat for your pet.


  • Structure and Materials: This high-quality spider enclosure uses clear glass, lightweight white PLA PRO plastic, neodymium magnets and arthropod-safe adhesives.


Each AeroVent spider enclosure includes a glass core, a removable bottom tray, an optional top glass or ventilated plate lid, two plugs, and an optional rear door. **(the ventilated plate lid can also be used as a bottom when both lids are purchased)


Additional Considerations:

  • Magnet Safety: Handle the powerful neodymium magnets carefully to avoid cracking the glass; it's best to slide them into position while not losing grip gently. Enclosures 12cm and smaller only use two magnets on corner sections.
  • Maintenance Tips: Distilled water can prevent calcium deposits on the glass, aiding in maintenance and clarity.


Care Instructions: Due to its predominantly glass construction, handle your spider enclosure with extra care to prevent damage.
