I went to Lowe's and bought some casters that you put under the furniture to protect hardwood floors. I am using them as water dishes. They are shallow, about 1/4" deep and they look nice. They are wide and low so they won't tip over and much better than bottle caps. Give them a try.

Good idea! Got a picture of one in the enclosure?

I hope you washed them first.

That's a fantastic idea! I've used all kinds in the past. If I can afford it, one of those exoterra rock-dishes (for the aesthetics), if not Lucozade bottle lids (washed, don't know if you have Lucozade stateside of the pond), coffee jar lids... you name it!

But that's a brilliant idea, they're small, they're brown (so they match the substrate) and they're cheap!

The best cheap-o water dished i've found were in the plumbing dept at Lowes; PVC temporary plumbing stubs. They're shallow, lightweight, available fro 2"-6" and cheap enough so as to be disposable.

With risk of hijacking the topic, I'd like to know some of the weirder things people have used for their spiders, be it for water bowls or whatever.

In fact, sod it, new topic time!

Why not gatorade caps?

O.o

I hope you didn't use that as a water-bowl!
