Just got two new T's and I need to know a bit about them. Temperment, housing, humidity/temp that kinda stuff. I'm also researching it right now but the more I know the better :D

I got O. gadgili
And B. vagans. They labeled this one as "A seemani" but I'm almost positive it's the Brachy.

Please and thank you!

There is information all over this board and google. Here is one correct example for you to give you a general idea:

i uuusually try to research the T's i want beeefore i buy them to make sure i really want them and so i can have everything set up in advance. It just makes it eeeasier, for me anyway.

Most WC stuff sold as "O. gadgili" are Haplopema.

Yes, I'm well aware of that.

Still, as I said, most WC stuff sold as "O. gadgili" are Haplopema.
