    Pinktoe Tarantula Enclosure Advice Needed.

    I planned on adding 2 more vents, I also don't keep my substrate too moist, because humidity in Florida is always high, usually 90's.

    Pinktoe Tarantula Enclosure Advice Needed.

    It's made by Dream Co. Plastics. You can get the vent holes lasered in for extra instead of aluminum vents. Mine used to go to the bottom of her old enclosure for drinks. This enclosure is still pretty new to her so she's still not 100% comfortable in it yet.

    Pinktoe Tarantula Enclosure Advice Needed.

    Always good to have lots of things to anchor Web to since they Web quite a bit. I included a pic of the enclosure I just put together for my C. Versicolor as an example!

    Which roach species should I go with?

    I use discoids, they work pretty good for all but the smallest T's, but they also burow like bubia.

    Discoid Roaches!

    Are there any statistics that show nutritional wise how a discoid stacks up against a dubi?

    Discoid Roaches!

    I live in Florida, it's illegal to have Dubi Roaches here. I figured Discoids would be the next best thing. I was thinking about keeping a small colony of these. My only local pet store that carries these does not have a large supply, and charges like a dollar a roach. I've heard of Cape Cod...

    He's still pretty little

    G. Pulchripes molt#2

    I just figured he would do what he did the first time and burrow down and make himself a little cave

    G. Pulchripes molt#2

    Well my G. Pulchripes finally molted again yesterday for the 2nd time. It's a little weird though, it didn't burrow down this time. It made a little bed area and molted there.

    GBB sling!

    Their colors do seem to really pop after a molt.

    And a freshly molted GBB sling!

    GBB sling!

    Might take another day or 2 for the GBB pic. It's still curled up a bit in recovery mode sitting on it's molt!

    My G.Pulchripes! Little freaking Ninja!

    GBB sling!

    That's what mine does, I have it in a juvenile size Terrestrial from jamies enclosures with a tiny water dish and plant and it webbed up the place.

    GBB sling!

    I'll see what I can do about pics. My GBB should be easy to get a good pic, my G. Pulchripes sling is more of a challenge, because he runs to his burrow pretty quick, but he molted about 2 weeks ago as well.

    GBB sling!

    You were right, I caught my GBB sling right in the middle of molting!:D

    GBB sling!

    Should I continue to offer a cricket for now on feeding days, or would it be a good idea to wait a couple weeks and try again? I realize they can go for long periods without eating. So I'm not afraid it's starving or anything!

    GBB sling!

    Okay, My GBB sling has had a very good feeding response until recently. It skipped out on a cricket one night,and the same night I noticed fungus growing in it's little cork bark hide that it never went into. I took immediate action and removed the hide and the cocoa fiber substrate anywhere...

    T Molting Support Group for Noobs*

    My G Pulchripes borrowed at the edge of it's enclosure so luckily I can watch it. It molted yesterday and I'm guessing it's resting to regain it's strength at the moment but I don't know all of it's habits yet. I'm hoping he digs out in the next couple of days.
