    Good Day! As I am new to this board, I have a quick question that might have been addressed in other threads. If so, please redirect me.

    I currently have a healthy young A. bicolor specimen, maybe 6th or 7th instar. He/she, not officially sexed as of yet, is being kept in a 5 gallon closed glass setup with sand, rocks, and a dried wood for cover. I have see information posted concerning housing this species together and wandered how it would fair to house this fellow with an A. australis hector morph or a L. quinquestriatus. Or even all three? Anyone care to share experience?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    With the exception of M balfouri, housing them together always results in a bloodbath and one very fat tarantula.

    With different species, it's 100% fatal.

    Non-Tityus/Centruroides buthids tend not to play nicely together with their own species, let alone others. Some people have had success with a communal setup of Parabuthus transvaalicus, but I wouldn't try Androctonus or Leiurus.
