Advertisement Ok so i have my first t my b.albiceps its a sling about 0.38 inches so i assume that is one molt down the line? i have a few questions about growth and growth rate! I have been told that b. albiceps is one of the slowest spiders to grow i knew this going in. I have got a nice warm area for him about 27-28c and am makeing sure to keep the enclosure moist not wet, and he seems to be occasionally about once every 4 days take down a pinhead cricket. Which is increadibly thrilling to watch and allways makes me jump as he apears to ignore the cricket and usually does... then bam the sucker is gone. Anyway my question is this i know that albiceps are really slow growing but when they are at this tiny tiny stage i heard they molt more frequently and then it slows down, is this still true for albiceps? im really keen for him to get atleast one more molt out the way so i can stop being so worried about him. Roughly how long between each molt at this stage would u guesstimate i know its hard lol. Also i would like to know if possible how to know when he is in premolt, he is so small atm i wont be able to see the abdomen darken and its already dark so i couldent tell eitherway, and he periodically refuses food only to accept it days later. After how many days of refusing food do i stop offering and know he is in premolt lol gahhhhh i have so many questions lol AND THIS IS AFTER EXTENSIVE RESEARCH its a shame i picked such an odd species as my first t there is barely any info on albiceps slings out there, and is 27-28c too hot for the little guy? and at this size should is one pinhead cricket every few days enough or should he have 2? any and all advice welcome and apreciated!!!
