Very cool species, mine just passed, a MM male that lived over a year after his ultimate molt. The purple alone is worth the price of admission. @octanejunkie got you on the overall husbandry, but mine was a fantastic eater, quick grower, heavy webber until the end and an overall great species to raise. My guy was a little mean growing up, throwing up his butt and spreading his fangs when I got too into his space. He once jumped from his enclosure to the lip of the bathtub, so be on the look out for that. And lastly, they will shoot poop. Without much warning. And pretty accurately too. Happy keeping!
