    My new setup for my GBB Sling I just received!

    You are right, misting is the best way for mildew :-) When I am writing about sprying, I mean only small place, 1-2 cm in diamater. When I am giving watter to my C. versicolor sling, I use syringe needle and add only several drops to wall and webbing. No misting at all.

    My new setup for my GBB Sling I just received!

    I think that problem is somewhere else and it has something to do with physics, surface tension and capillarity. As far as I know, small slings are not able to drink from dish as easy as from very small drops like dew. Also this is the reason why to try spray as much as possible (no amount, but...

    My new setup for my GBB Sling I just received!

    I checked some more resources on water dish and slings, because I wanted to be sure. And, for example, at Tom big´s Spiders I found that for juvenile is good bottle cap, for older slings too, but for small and normal slings is better to use watter dropper and put some moisture on plants and webbing.

    Natural Habitat for H. pulchripes?

    But back to you - do not use sand. I would recommand to mix peat and Lignocel. It can be bought in petstores without problems. Use it up to 80 % of substrate height. Then get some small turfs from normal lawn. Take several pieces, each about 3-10cm in diameter, 2cm of soil/ground. Put it on...

    Nice to see that some people still have good taste :-) No plastic inside, no straight cuts... Great.

    How Do You Handle People Who Ignore the Advice They Asked For?

    Can you imagine that all born Tarantulas would stay alive? Give your best advices, but let her be. It is her tarantula, her life. If she will see National Geographic document from Africa and will try to fry her and eat her for diner like people at Kambodgia for example, it is her thing :-)

    Biotop enclosure´s

    Hallo, I wrote "from my list" and I have no Chilobrachys or Balfouri, but the firts is for OBT, the second is GBB :-) The one for GBB is for webbing only, but the one for OBT has a lot of substrate with possibility to burrow an entrance from the front side, T can get under the roots and far...

    Natural Habitat for H. pulchripes?

    I used normal grey dirt, not all south Africa is yellowish and there is a bigger T contrast to ground, but you could use some kind of a clay. It is hard when dry but you can crush it to powder, dredge (is it good word??) the dirt with it and use a bit of watter (spray), it will make something...

    Natural Habitat for H. pulchripes?

    Yes, I do. This part of South Africa is flat, mainly bare soils with some dry turfs. And H. pulchripes burrows, so it will only make a small hole in the middle of nothing and it is all. Check Google maps Street View, GPS -30.8228269, 24.5067736, look around :-) I have it in 50cmx35cm, substrate...

    No problems, thank you. I am finding this server more and more "funny", so I am not surprised any more. Form wins over content here.

    Comment by 'PetrZ' in media 'O. philippinus'

    I think one of the reasons is that this T is small. If someone wants nice big orange T, he will choose OBT, because it is up to 5", O. philippinus is about 2.5" :-( He is nice, but small... :-(

    Info on keeping GBE? I'm very interested.

    This is exactly what I mean. Web full of expert always willing to help you... But they do not know basic abbreviations and are not able to check Google before writing something. Yes, better to be sure. The best would be to buy beekeeper suite. And if you would add also Finger Gauntlets, you...

    My new setup for my GBB Sling I just received!

    If you have bone dry substrate, drops stays there for several hours. Also, when you feed every day or every second day and regurally add drops on web or walls, no problem with dehydratation. And for slings are small drops on web/wall much more suitable than dish. It is valid for all slings. And...

    Info on keeping GBE? I'm very interested.

    You are right. But, when 10 people give you 10 different advices or recommandations, it is for nothing, because these information are not valid at all times. Each T is different, so, basic important rules are the same, like hight humidity here, the rest is for nothing and the best way is to get...

    No, I did not ask. Some people know me, know my T´s, it was small "quiz" for which T is this enclose prepared. You are right that some time ago I asked which T should be in which encsloure, but this was different case. But no problem, ok, thread is here, you are admin. You are probably right, it...

    Info on keeping GBE? I'm very interested.

    You are right. But the reason is simple - everything was already written, there is nothing new you could add. Yes, I could rewrite http://www.theraphosidae.be/en/theraphosa-blondi/ here, but why? I am sure that WillEagle already made some "technical" research and now he ask for personal...

    Yes. He wrote "Could someone enlighten me on this species?". He did not ask whether he should buy it or not :-)

    Info on keeping GBE? I'm very interested.

    You write that you do not trust to other sites, but be carefull here. As I could find, most of people here are like unexperienced and scared children and will explain you how is everything hard and not suitable for you instead of real help. As you can see by yourself, the first guy tried to...
