    Thanks everyone I got an email today that said my t shipped so I should have it in a day or two.I also wanted a rose hair I only ordered the golden knee because its my first and thought I would get use to it for a week or so then order the rose hair.After all the reading and video watching I have been doing I will go ahead and order the rose hair.I just want to be sure I can take good care of them.

    Need an opinion quick.As I said I was going to order a rose hair.But came across this one on craigslist today.The guy wants 50 dollars for it which includes the setup.Would that be a good buy?

    My little girl disappeared and I have not seen her since yesterday evening.I want to try and feed her tomorrow.This little girl will make a nervous wreck out of me worrying about her welfare.I would guess she is ok but I want everything to go ok.This is my first T so I better get use to this.

    Don't worry they do that as slings, they can hide away for months but as long as food is taken you know all's well.

    Iam scared my T would not come out to eat the pinhead I put in the enclosure for her and I had put some sweet potato and romaine lettuce with the water gel for the pinheads in their container and it seems they are dying.What else will go wrong I thought the pinheads would not die like this.
