Tribs make GREAT pets when you get healthy specimens and have them set up correctly. That being said, your setup sounds fine. I use a bark substrate with a tupperware filled with sphagnum moss for hiding and egg laying. Mine are kept around 78 F during the day dropping significantly at night. My pair is also housed in a 20 long with a screen top. I feed crickets 1-2 times a week and mine seem to be doing great. if you decide on these wonderful creatures make sure u get ones that appear healthy. Also, they do not tolerate handling well imo. it stresses them out. they are def a better display creature. good luck and have fun,
Justin
