Pros
  • - 3 Lava Spiders (Davus sp. Panama) arrived in wonderful condition and appropriate size.
  • - Free substrate and enclosures (deli cups with the right amount of ventilation holes)
  • - Packaging was phenomenal. The heat pack was just warm enough for this winter shipment.
  • - Free documentation regarding important care parameters.
  • - Topnotch pricing (one lava spider sling was only $105)
  • - Great communicator
As a first-time tarantula keeper, I highly recommend Steve from Arachnoiden. He communicated well and answered many of my questions even before I placed my order. I was about to order on other sites that appear first in Google searches, but thankfully I did more research and found his site.
His pricing on these rare lava spiders is unmatched ($105) since they usually go for $175+ for 1 sling in other sites.
Coupled with the sliding-scale shipping, I ended up saving a lot on my first-ever tarantula purchase.
Like many other customers, I believe his packaging is amazing.
My T's were shipped from Massachusetts to Iowa in the freezing cold and they arrived warm and healthy.
More people should know about Steve's collection, particularly beginners.
10/10; I would buy from him again!

  • Great prices, very reasonable
  • Amazing communication
  • Happy to share his knowledge
Cons
  • None
Steve of Arachnoiden is fantastic. This is my second time ordering from him. He responds very quickly to emails. He has helped me troubleshoot and offered advice and know how long after the transaction was over. He is patient with folks who ask lots of questions. He offers molt sexing if you ship molts to him. I was delighted by unexpected freebies each time, and he did a good job of matching care needs/keeper experience levels of the freebies to the purchased tarantulas. That is to say he didn’t send a pokie or obt alongside my dolichothele and brachypelmas. As an newb, I appreciate that. And I have yet to see anyone who packages animals as safely and professionally as he does. All in all you can tell he is passionate about the animals and what he does, he knows his stuff, and doesn’t gatekeep that knowledge. It is a pleasure doing business with him. Highest recommendation. If he carried every T I am interested in, he would be my go to guy for everything.

I ordered
(0.1) Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens
(0.1) H. Pulchripes
(0.0.1) E Walckenaeri

The order was processed through his website. Smooth transactions and updates though out the whole process.
Included some information that he felt might be over looked for the Eresus species which I appreciated.
Very good packaging as well!
Also included a freebie.
Would definitely recommend and will be purchasing again.
