How fast do these guys grow? The girl at the store said they've had her since she was a sling. I'm learning this species is a super common one people get and is so abundant that people just give them away. I got her bc her living condition was terrible even for in a petstore display tank

It looks like she us doing well. You did a good job on her setup from what i can see. Aphonopelma are slow growers. :)

One of my favorite species to raise and bred. I have 4 females at the moment. Doesn't look like she's going to get much bigger. They max out at 5". I'd say the store had her for over 6 years I you believe her story...I highly doubt it. If so they are horrible at making a sale. Good luck with your new addition.
