My Male golith is on his back molting for what i think will be his last time. This is a good thing becuase i have a huge female. Does anybody have any expirance breeding these. How lon will it take to construct a sperm web? How will i know if he did , if they destroy it after they use it? How long do you think it will be before he can breed?=D

My male is currenty with Phillip and "Large Marge". You may want to contact him for specifics, but I think he's pretty much followed standard procedures, just stood my with something in hand to separate them when it looks like it's getting ugly. I'd make sure she is well fed.

As for the sperm web, I've only seen one male actually make and use one, the others have always done so while I'm absent. IME, it is easy to tell they've done so by the excess webbing that wasn't there before. My male T. blondi made his under his hide... a large terra cotta saucer he'd removed all the substrate out from underneath.

Good luck and keep us posted.
