Any care sheets on these yet?
ok ill look up P. regalis care sheet then lolYou dont need a caresheet. Keep them the same as P regalis and they will do fine with the exception that I use deeper substrate especially for the juveniles as they will burrow and/or make a web and substrate "turret or tube" along the sides of the tank or cork bark that is stacked inside the tank
Do it like this. Now a full sized adult will be too large for this 1 gallon jar and I will soon have to move this one to something different like an Exo Terra but this will hold one til it gets up to about 4-5 inches which doesnt take long to get there
If you start out with a small sling do it like this
left the pics out of the quote since they are too big lol
thats cool, mine was about 1" but molted like yesterday so not sure how big now.
I thought they were supposed to be arboreal?!? they look like arboreals wiht those foot pads. and thats what i read... I was hoping not to have another pet hole lol
however, my pet holes i have now only one is really a pet hole lol and thats H. gigas. i am hoping it will be a diving spider soon lol
well at least they are closer to my price range than a blue pokie lolThey are arboreal. They are like H mac and Psalmopoeus spp in that they construct a tube and cover it with substrate. As they get larger they will be a little less inclined to that but still dont make the good display sp that a Poke does.
try this....put the water as far away as you can from where the crickets are hiding and they'll have to risk their life to get water...if you move the cork bark you could mess up your T"s hiding areas. once all the crickets are out of that hiding place (without moving the corkbark) try to pack it with something so you can keep them out of there.Kinda concerned about about mine, she's probibly about 1 - 1.5 inches now. Her burrow is so complex that I don't think she's finding food. She made a burrow behind and under a peice of corkbark, from the top to the bottom. Those clever crickets are collecting themselves in a very small space that she can't get to. I'm debating if I should mess with the corkbark. Any advice would be greatly appreciated...
if you bubble air thru water it will pick up as much water as it can hold and then enter the Ts enclosure. What i dont know is if it will really help as you also need good ventilation . so it may just be a very minor increase. also, you run risk of bacteria multiplying in the water, which i would use a piece of silver in it to try to cut that down and also the water would go pretty fast in dryer areas.I've always wondered if that would work
IMO that is going overboard. Sure it might work but there is an easier solution and that is simply pouring about a 1/2 cup of water on the substrate when it starts looking dryish. If you are lazy like me that method is the way to go LOLif you bubble air thru water it will pick up as much water as it can hold and then enter the Ts enclosure.
