I cant find any caresheets on Blue Fangs, specificly slings. Can anyone point me to one or give me some information?
thanks, what temps do u keep them at? What are their eating habbits like?Just make sure it has plenty of substrate to burrow, keep on the moist side. That's how I raise 'em. If small enough, add a little fake leaf or somethine, they sometimes like to web around a little bit to something.
+1 its a tarantula not a goldfish! Lol... Dump the sub and squeeze it out so that barely any water drips out of your fist ,he should start burrowing in a day or two...I would honestly put some holes in the sides of the container for better cross ventilation. It seems awfully wet in there.
Many times these burrowers wont do much till night breakHmm.. I just rehoused my, recently molted, E. Cyanognathus into a 50 dram vial. It's been a whole day and I've yet to see it burrow, it stays on the side of the enclosure, I know I must be doing something wrong. I'll be posting pics soon, let me know what you guys think, thanks for the help.
I'm pretty sure that's a female BTW.. Its a long shot at this size but I'm calling it.Lol!Alright so, here are the pics I promised, I'm wondering if perhaps I need to add more ventilation or just replace the whole enclosure itself, also should I wet the substrate further? :? I use Cocofiber and keep my T at 75-80F. Thanks again.
If you are correct then you sir are a beast and I am not worthy!! ray: lol. I guess we'll have to wait and see, I'll be sure to post vent pics when "she" gets older.I'm pretty sure that's a female BTW.. Its a long shot at this size but I'm calling it.Lol!
what!! not a goldfish?? the guy at the pet store must have lied to me then! I'm outraged. hahaha, ok I think I will take your advice.+1 its a tarantula not a goldfish! Lol...

+1 X 100+1. Or better yet, why not use a 16 oz deli cup like everyone else does?
Hmmm.......I must be doing it wrong. :?+1 X 100
Vials are a very poor choice for housing. A 16oz deli cup will be able to be cross ventilated (unlike a vial), which is vitally important for species that require higher moisture...ignore it and you'll end up will all kinds of trouble, like mold, mites or a dead t. The deli cup will also provide more room for the t to burrow and visibility is very good for you. Its also much more stable and less likely to get knocked over as the base of a vial is quite small.
I hope its dried out a bit, but I know in a vial things can take a long time to dry.
