    Those look awesome! Currently I breed 11 species of isopods, but reading these forums are making me want to get into some T’s also! What would be a good starter species? Preferably something easy to keep and possibly breed at some point. Any info and tips you have for a newbie would be great, I hope to get my first T in the next week or so (if I find a good source). Thanks!

    I will always reccomend Caribena versicolor as a great starter tarantula. I love them out of any tarantula ever. Make sure to give them plenty of cross ventilation with a water dish at the bottom. Some say you can keep the substrate dry with a water dish but I like to keep it semi damp with a water dish. Here’s a quick guide on how to set up an enclosure for a sling.

    No problem! This is just my opinion though. Others may recommend something totally different that you may like more!
