Right i have an Acanthoscurria Broklehursti, does it like its substrate wet?
Also a Lasiodora Parahybana, does that also like its substrate wet?
How Long Will Lasiodora Parahybana take to be sexually matue as im getting four 2-3" ones today.

thanks dayredfern

Well, I personally do not have any experience with either of these species. However, I highly doubt that it would be good for the substrate to be kept wet. Slightly moist would be a better option. Wetness can cause mold growth or an outbreak of mites which can be bad for your T. Sorry I can't give you any further advise but good luck with your pets.:)

im not so sure about the other one, but the L. Parahybana likes it to be humid, but not soaked. At the same time though its a VERY hardy species. So long as you dont let the tank completely dry out, and it has a good sized water dish with clean water in it all the time, then it will do fine.

I had an L parahybana male mature in just under 2 years.

They will both be fine with dry substrate and a full water dish...

not to critiszie the OP, but perhaps a little more research before purchase would be better? also there is a search function on here for a reason
