    Where do you buy your spiders from?

    Oh no, not even more options :P Had never seen SpiderPlanet before thanks. I especially like that they label whether they are captive bred or not, as the spider shop does. Assuming we are talking about the UK here, I echo the above re 'the spider shop' and 'so many legs' - quite a few of mine...

    Thanks! Yes I use a pipette to put a few droplets on the web now and then :)

    Black crickets supposed to chirp?

    Haha, I did wonder about this when my 'silent crickets' started making cricket sounds :P I'm confused about why they make that distinction then.

    Ping Pong Balls.

    There's going to be a new generation of Ts all brought up with ping-pong balls ahaha :P I got mine from The Yorkshire Trading Company in the UK, but I think any miscellaneous shop with a kids toys/outdoor play section should have them. I was going to look in the pound shop until our local one...

    I 'think' we have it sorted now - no condensation has appeared overnight :)

    Caribena versicolor sling worries

    Thanks! Argh, it looks like everyone has their own avic methods even now the husbandry of avics is meant to be solved/simple. Trying to hold in some humidity was why I hadn't put holes in the top in the first place. But then other people say that in captivity Avics do best with it completely...

    Ping Pong Balls.

    I am another hoping to unlock tarantula intelligence with ping-pong balls :P Misty and Bellatrix have ignored theirs so far, but Nymphadora has moved hers. I do hope that was intentional ;) She has moved it to the corner where she seems to like to sit the most, I figure that's because it is...

    Your opinion: the most beautiful T species?

    I'm sure I am to find more, but my current 3 are below. My favourite colour is teal, so there is a theme here ;) Although I do love the adult colours too> Ybyrabora diversipes - Here is Luna: Caribena versicolor Avicularia avicularia (or any of their morphs really) - Here is Amelia:

    Caribena versicolor sling worries

    Hi, thanks. It is in my most ventilated room; the other enclosures have never had condensation, except for the ones made out of this plastic. I didn't have another of these cups spare anyway so I have used a smaller one which is a different plastic again, but I figured that might be for the best...

    Okay, thanks very much! I have the venting all down both opposite sides of the cup, not sure if that is clear in the picture. Do I need the venting to go all the way around?

    Caribena versicolor sling worries

    Hi, I got a new Caribena versicolor sling yesterday. I am extra anxious as my last one died so I wanted to check whether this set-up is okay? I have an Avicularia Peru purple and Ybyrapora diversipes who seem to have grown well in the last few months in the same set-up. However TSS have changed...

    These are the vent holes on the enclosure, perhaps about 1.5mm wide:
