2-3 inches legspan, or bodysize? If it's bodysize then it sounds pretty big.

You wouldnt want a 10 gallon unless you put a crap load of substrate in the tank. With terrestrial spiders you want a short area of space incase it decides to climb and fall. The fall from a 10 gallon with minimal subtrate could lead to a rupture in the abdomen. Also rose hairs like the substrate dry (not sure if you've been reading up on them or not)


also a spider with a 2-3 inch head to abdomin area is pretty large usually spiders are measured by leg tip-to leg tip . Anyway.... it may be getting to the size needed for sexing. Best way to tell is from the molt.

I like using molts as you dont have to wait for maturity and the appearance of boxing gloves Very Happy
