P. Sazimai #2 2 And 1-4 Inches
What's their growth rate like? Ever since these were discovered, I thought I would get a couple because they seem to be quite blue. Yet, I've seen quite a few (who knows where in molt cycle they were) that weren't that blue as adults. So I've held off....along w/their variable disposition reported by some. Still on the fence.
 
Looking over my molt records:

Specimen 1 (female): 1/4 inch to 3 and 1/2 inches in 22 months BUT has not molted in 14 months since.

Specimen 2 (male): 1/4 inch to 3 inches in 21 months BUT has not molted in 15 months since.

So, decent growth with temps in the low 70s, but it slows quite a a bit once they hit 3 inches.

Both of mine are extremely threat pose-y.
 
@nicodimus22 At least they get down to biz! Read that recent thread on them- behavior remind me of H sp Columbia Large a bit.

The bluest T is a “problem” child hah, just my luck.
 
Eh, I don't think it's much of a problem unless you want to handle them. It's funny how they act worse than all my Phormictopus and Nhandu species though. Those have the bad reputation.
 
@nicodimus22 agreed, I don’t handle my Ts

I ask because I like low maintenance husbandry generally regarding behavior.

I suspect I’ll get one at some point. They are too blue not to.
