The picture was hard for me to see. But if it is a Chromatopelma cyanopubescens (common name: green bottle blue), here is a short description for them. I pulled this off of www.swiftinverts.com. I am sure there are more care sheets for them, but this gives you a general idea.

"From the scrubland of Venezuela, these beautiful multicolored wonders need no introduction, keep on the drier side, toughest thing since an "Usambara"! "

Hope that helps.

Heh heh. What a coincidence. I own a Greenbottle Blue myselef. She/He is still small and does not have its adult coloration. All I can say is that they are very easy to care for. But they are a little jumpy. Mine runs around in fear whenever I open its deli cup when I feed and water it.

Before this thread goes too much further.. Delopelma was synonomized with Aphonopelma, not Chromatopelma. The site above may have it mislabeled. I would expect a brown tarantula, that prefers a drier climate, with only that to go on.

Yes, but Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens was placed in Delopelma until pretty recently. Given the slow rate at which taxonomic changes are reflected in some dealer's price lists, I'd bet the spider in question turns out to be a C. cyaneopubescens.
