well i see people have looked but not replied , so do this mean you don't know or what?, come on i need help here! the stuff i'm getting means a lot to me (malaysian earth tiger adult female, laos zebra adult female, and 2 african tunneling spiders(sp?), the other 2 made eggsacs so i have to wait 30 days for them), so what should i do ? perhaps provide a hide? keep em in a dark room what? never had this happen before because i usually always have peat on hand...

Just keep them in the deli cups (if you have nothing else), but take out some of the packing so they've got some more room to move around..

they're very hardy. no worries...
just keep em how they came,only with a bit more room...

try feeding them maybe...
and then just hold on untill you can get substrate.

i think people didn't answer cos it's really nothing to be worried about... that came out rudely -- i don't mean it so :)

good luck buddy!
peace

Just saw the post but i agree with dave. Just leave them in what they come in... just take out any papertowel or whatever they put in with them. They should be fine. Just as soon as you can get substrate do it. I have had to leave a couple of mine in what they came in over night and they were fine. They even ate.

peace

Who on earth is delivering on the 4th? My concern would be that they were delayed on the 3rd and you won't get them until Monday, July 7. Now THAT would be a problem.
