Has anyone here ever had two Avicularia Avicularia in the same cage but not trying to mate them, I've heard that you can.

I've heard of several members doing this and 50% it ended good and the other 50% not so much, so even though they can be considered communal doesn't mean you should. They are probably more tolerant of each other rather then communal.

It could work, it certainly increases the chances, but no matter how big the cage its still limited, so it doesn't have to be 100% bullet proof. This species can be bought cheaply so if you're really wanting to do this, go for it. Just be sure to feed them alot and keep an eye out on them. I've kept a male and female together successful for about 5 months. The male was removed after the female began gaining weight and webbing alot.
