    First off thank you for responding to both my threads. I really appreciate it. Been reading posts on here for a while and finally made the jump to get on it myself. To follow up. What do you mean by extreme molt? He/she will be molting very soon? Also is it too big of a deal that I messed up her hide/web she berried herself in? I wasn't gonna rehouse her after thinking it would treat her out more having to make another hide. But I have a taller more ventilated enclosure I set up for her. She made her way into a piece of pvc I put in there. Should I move her into the taller set up with her in the pvc. And I'm just assuming she's a she for now btw. Thanks alot again

    Oops, I meant premolt. Yeah, should be molting within a couple weeks. Nah, not really. Should be okay.

    If her current cage is well vented and set up okay. I'd leave her with a water dish to molt and then rehouse a few days after she molts

    She came in a small critter keeper. Obviously slot of ventilation but all towards the top sir. So I gently housed her in the small enclosure I had set up for her with alot of anchor points and bottle cap water dish. I will post a picture. Let me know if this is good enough. I didn't want to house her in something too big

    I feel like these posts (duplicates from another thread) are here on accident? I really like my psalmopoes irminia. They are beautiful Ts of black and orange and they make really cool "dirt curtain" web tunnels. Much more agressive eaters than my avic avic.

    (Genus) Psalmopoeus or nothing. Screw 'Avics' :cigar: and run with the God damn it best complete arboreal genus ever.

    What can 'teach' to a keeper Psalmopoeus species is priceless. Then, after, you're ready for 'pokies' but, IMO better than those 'run & hide' shy Indian subcontinent spiders, the Asian pissed off tree climbers like a female of Lampropelma nigerrimum or Stromatopelma calceatum, a fury on eight legs.

    As people have said, I would go with a Psalmopoeus. I’m about to get an irminia myself.

    The Avicularia genus (and relatives) is very diverse. If arboreals are your thing, you can consider exploring more species within that Avicularia/Caribena/Ybyrapora complex. They all have their unique attributes, and are a pleasure to keep:)

    Thanks everyone for the quick positive responses! You know what's funny. I was honestly going to pictured two days ago and saw a picture of an irninia and screenshot it. Did some research on care. And when I went for pictured. lot of the pictures showing up the irminias weren't truly black and orange. Most of them were brown.

    You are absolutely right. I was looking into versicolor in particular. They're beautiful and much more docile than alot of other arboreals

    Adult females get some really stunning color, but juveniles can at times be a little muddled in color. Here’s a picture of my adult female, she’s about 6.25 inches now.

    Quite cramped set up. I'd move to the bigger cage right away. IMG_20171022_215800_583.jpg
    Irminia are psychos. Worth it tho. You're ready for pokies after raising a female of these. Screenshot_20170815-195629.png

    I’m pretty sure my girl is broken... She’s very calm and polite as can be, and is always out on display. I think I got one threat posture out of her when she was in heavy premolt. Total weirdo. At times I kinda wish she was so fiesty :p

    Mine is too. My male isn't. Same with my other make arboreals. Makes me think they're all just like that and the females have all the fight in them.
