    Substrate settles down?

    It seems like every so often I have to add substrate to my enclosures, I fill to an appropriate level and in 3 or 4 months it seems to settle or get packed down lower. Anyone else experience this? I'm guessing it's from the vibrations in the house slowly shifting the substrate.

    I've been really surprised so far, this one has kept its water dish really clean. Suspicious I know

    It’s getting to be winter time is there anyway how I could keep it warm in the winter I have a heat mat on the side but I don’t think that’s enough

    Glad to see you changed the substrate, that looks much more suitable. Again the if you are comfortable they are comfortable rule would apply. That heat mat should be plenty as long as your house is heated. However, if it would help your worries, use a space heater to warm whatever room you...

    What are good temp for my T (day and night)

    Depends on the size of enclosure. I recommend packing it down by hand as well. I finger my ts dont like very loose substrate. Plus packing helps it retain a burrow should the t decide to make one.

    What are good temp for my T (day and night)

    Can I feed my Mexican red knee tarantula monarch caterpillars?

    Short answer, no. Not only are they toxic. But they are in decline in the wild. I'd be protecting them. Not using them as feeders

    Curly haired Tarantula heating advice...

    If your comfortable, they are. My t room is currently sitting at about 68f give or take a few degrees. And my ts are just fine.

    I'm worried about my T

    Along with what brachy said, when it comes to tarantulas, as long as your setup is correct. Chances are whatever behavior has you upset is just the t being a t. Provide food, water, and a good habitat, and the rest is just entertainment.
