I just got a brachypelma albopilosum sling yesterday . I know they generally won't accept food for a couple days when they're moved to a new enclosure, but I offered the little guy a cricket since it was time for him to eat (three days since last eaten) and he gobbeled it right up. When I went to go remove the cricket in the morning the cricket was completely gone! There was nothing left. Since I was told you give them two or three crickets I gave it another one and he's currently eating it now. I'm keeping him in a small 120 ml container (not sure what the other dimensions are) with eco earth substrate thats about half an inch deep. I didn't realize you had to let the substrate dry after you soak it, so I made the mistake of putting it in wet substrate. Since I did that I haven't misted the enclosure. I have nice ventilation on the sides and top where I poked a sewing needle through. The little guy seems to be doing just fine. Just wondering if there is anything I could do to improve? I plan to change the substrate once the other portion dries btw. I have put a picture of his enclosure.
