    Heating my Aphonopelma chalcodes

    Ive heard this one too. I would think this would be a safe alternative as it gives of very little heat. @Zannee2000 I should mention my cabinet is open at the back so there is always a little air being circulated through to the enclosures and preventing the area from over heating. Also the...

    Heating my Aphonopelma chalcodes

    Thats a tough one! There are experts here that I'm sure will give you some good advice. Also check out some of the other threads here I believe a few T keepers have had this question although its obviously a little different in your situation. Heres my advice.. First of all I am technically...

    B. Vagans

    Hello and welcome ☺ Yes what Lawrence said! I have only been in the hobby 10 months and started with a B. Albo sling. I now have four T's all purchased as slings, two are now juveniles. I must say I have enjoyed watching them grow.. Its been quite an exciting experience. I got into the hobby...

    My Cyriocosmus Aueri sling.. There was a little mold growing on the stick I put in this enclosure but was removed after this photo :)

    Heating a tarantula

    Thanks guys :) I'll keep the heat pad where its at and away from the enclosures. As far as my albo goes i will leave the next feed until after she molts. Shes always got a full water dish. Unsexed by the way.. Just wishful thinking in saying she :)

    Heating a tarantula

    I keep my house around 68°.. I live with two other people and this is the agreed upon acceptable house temperature lol. I live in the pacific Northwest so it does get fairly cold in the winter. At the moment it drops below 60° if my heat is not on. So i bought a small heat pad and have placed it...

    A few questions about Tarantula's

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll look into getting a smaller enclosure. I will have to order it online as they dont sell them at any of the shops near me. The exo terra nano is the smallest i could find. My T is in premolt so I may wait until its molted and hardened before i rehouse. Im not sure...

    A few questions about Tarantula's

    My B. Albo did the same thing after just a week of refusing food then just last night I found it wandering around the enclosure. It gladly took a small dubia roach. My albo is about 1.5" - 2" and feeds like there is no tomorrow. In fact its a little on the heavy side so may have to skip another...

    Death curl??

    Thanks for the advice. I have my exo terra nano tall ready to go so maybe ill rehouse it back, was going to wait till it molts once more so its a little bigger. When it was in the exo terra previously it made a very small web and in an awkward location making it hard to feed. Maybe now that my T...

    Death curl??

    Is that your C. Versicolour? How big is she? I do really like that setup. The wine glass doesnt take up as much space as i thought it would. Is that the exo terra nano? Do you have a hard time doing enclosure maintenance or feeding your T with it on the door like that? My C. Laeta was in the...

    Death curl??

    Thats what i have been worried about as far as misting the enclosure. I am careful to not add to much moisture but my T seems to only drink from the water droplets on the side of the container. I do have a water dish (on the ground atm) and have never seen my T even near it. Then again maybe its...

    Death curl??

    I figured I would give yas an update as I was a fairly dramatic in the title of this post.. :p My T is fine, has even fed on a dubia for the first time in months so a definite change in behavior :) I have since added some spagnum moss and will be buying organic top soil and vermiculite...

    Death curl??

    @Arachnoclown @Casey K. Thanks for the advice guys, I misted the enclosure last night and my T already seems better.. Legs are no longer curled under and has moved around its enclosure. So obviously i wasnt misting the enclosure enough (i figured just a water dish would do) so how often...

    Death curl??

    Ok so this is a lot to read but i wanted to be thorough.. My Caribena Laeta pink toe has been very lathargic over the past couple of weeks. I have recently rehoused it into a smaller enclosure (last one was too large.) Its been roughly two months since it has last fed and has not shown any...
