    They don't actually need or benefit from a water feature, although you may be able to observe some interesting behavior if you set it up that way. I saw my female quickly dive down her water dish, only to emerge suddenly after realizing it's wasn't deep enough for her to hide in , she then darted back into her burrow.
    As far as I can tell, they will only enter the water if spooked which is pretty funny to see, but I don't think they actually hunt aquatic prey like fish.
    I keep mine in a simple setup although it would be pretty cool to have a large enclosure with a big T and some fish swimming around, very visually stunning that's for sure. My H.gigas are out at the mouth of their burrows almost every night, but they have a smaller enclosure and plenty of burrowing space. Perhaps your setup was too large and caused your gigas to hide more, but mine haven't been like my other pet holes, seem more active and out and about. But individuals vary...

    New species are always grossly over priced IMO...I'm not into buying over priced anything. Eventually prices will come down, im in no hurry:)

    Generally its an escape mechnism from what ive seen...i dont doubt that there is also a hunting aspect to it, as they will snatch small fish.

    No, its more than i would spend on one by a lot....id rather just not have one at that price....and ive seen the species priced a lot more than that, too.

    My current list, don't mind the German words...

    - Ceratogyrus darlingi

    - Haplopelma vonwirthi
    - Lyrognathus giannisposatoi
    - Lampropelma sp. "Borneo Black"
    - Phlogiellus spec. Ao Tan Khu
    - Psednocnemis brachyramosa

    - Aphonopelma chalcodes
    - Brachypelma smithi
    - Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens
    - Cyriocosmus elegans
    - Ephebopus murinus
    - Euathlus sp. "Fire"
    - Hapalopus triseriatus "Lowland"
    - Nhandu coloratovillosum

    Nothing final, nothing definite, but after browsing different species, I picked these out.
    In general, I aim for a small (~20) collection with species that differ from each other if possible, or at least not just having 20 NW terrestrials.
    Now, some of you might have noticed there's no Pokie on it. That's a mistake. As I said, incomplete.

    I do have so far:
    - A. geniculata
    - G. pulchra
    - P. murinus

    That's leaving room for ~2 more specimen, which may very well be Pokies.
    They are too beautiful and unique to be left out.

    several but, I am going to list the most unobtainable.

    CITES B.Vagans

    Wild caught A. iodus that I caught myself. This one isn't so hard....just got to make time to do it.
  7. DrowsyLids

    DrowsyLids Arachnosquire

    G. pulchra
    M. balfouri eventually
    Also eyeing some OW Asian terrestrials but haven't made any decisions yet.
  8. Arachnomaniac19

    Arachnomaniac19 Arachnolord

    Grammostola grossa has been on the top of my list for a while. They're just hard to find when you don't want a male or to get them via shipping (too many bad experiences).
  9. Ungoliant

    Ungoliant Malleus Aranearum Staff Member

    Those are equally good choices, so naturally you should get them all!

    I only had 1 on my wishlist and I picked 1 of that species up 2 weeks ago that was Eucratoscelus pachypus, I've wanted 1 for 2 years they aren't rare or expensive but I didn't want a wild caught female I wanted a sling and got 1 at around 2cm. Anything else I aquire isn't on my list

    Every species in the Acanthoscurria genus. I also think I want to get a dwarf like C.Elegans and see what if I like them.

    An L. difficilis and a B. albiceps for sure. Maybe another Phormictopus or a Pamphobeteus. :angelic:
