It is not advisable.
They like the open scape, and it would be a toughtime for them to stay in such a limited space.

Why not spiders? I've observed spiders in almost all my garden terrariums.

Some of them are really cool. If you know about them, you'll start to like them. I love their behaviour.

There will be some problems in keeping them; I have to faced the problem of live insects for them. If I keep open the paludarium, they will escape.
