So, lately some of my T’s have been dying for reasons I can’t really explain. It started with Pecan, my Chilobrachys huahini. Then it was my scorpion, Dune (not a T, but you get the idea). Now it was my newest T. My Caribena laeta. I have 3 T’s alive at the moment. If I can’t keep these 3 alive, I don’t know what I’ll do. The ones that survived are Nagini, my Ceratogyrus darlingi, my Brachypelma albopilosum, and Chaka, my Grammostola pulchripes. The Hardy 3 as I call them. Luckily, I have a mantis and a small and at the moment queenless ant colony (Lasius cf. aphidicola).

I genuinely hope this is not a goodbye! You are a fantastic member of the forum and 'tarantula family'. Unfortunately deaths are inevitable and many cannot be explained. It is nothing you are doing so keep the faith dude.

I totally agree with @Phil, most of us suffer losses at times in fact I have just lost my C. laeta adult female at 5 years old and I don't understand why. Please, please don't give up.

Sudden death with spiders is sometimes common. Some days I walk in my room and find a few that passed away as well. Totally unexplainable.

I also forgot to mention that my huntsman died last week, but it was a wild caught adult so totally explainable. The other deaths are just kind of ridiculous...

Actually 14 now...
Lol I had a feeling if you were a bit older you would be sure to let me know cos noone up to the age of 21 wants to be thought of as younger as they are. Just wait until you get to my age, you become the complete opposite!! Haha

I know it sucks but don’t lose hope. Just remember, no matter how awful it seems, there are other people soo miserable that they resort to attacking people they don’t know on the internet. Lol that is rock bottom

We all have death's. It's sad but it's true.
I had a female A.geniculata that died (DKS, but probarbly because the live plants came from flowershop that used pestisides) and I quit for a while ... a short while. After 6 months I bought 4 slings from the A.geniculata ... although some died ( got a freebee somwhere as well) I still ahve 3 now.
During the hot summer i lost 7 !! ??? :(. Very sad. And I lost all 5 C.versicolor ....
Things like that happen .. some where my mistakes, some where unexplained. We all need to learn also.
