Default A. Macrodactylum in for the winter

This fall I plan on moving them inside into a dedicated wine fridge. ( don't worry, it has vents ) What temp should I keep them at? The fridge has a temp rang of 41-54 Fahrenheit. I just don't want to keep them outside, we get deep freezes every once in a while, i'm located in Oregon,USA

How are they currently being housed.....and why do you feel the need to refrigerate?

They are currently in a 10 gallon aquarium out side with soil moss and pieces of wood. I thought that if I refrigerate them they would at least be able to feel some sort of winter, but if I leave them outside I know they'll freeze

You are right to bring them in, however there is no need to refrigerate. Place them in a cooler area of your home, somewhere where the temperature doesn't exceed the low 70sF.
