Separate names with a comma.

Is this the same species with the common name “Violet Tree Spider”?
No, thus why common names are such a confusing pain in the butt. IIRC "Violet Tree Spider" is referring to Tapinauchenius violaceus. Chilobrachys fimbriatus is not an arboreal T - the genus is known for being hardcore burrowers.
For starters, i suggest you stop changing substrate. It is very stressful for them and this can.be the reason it doesnt burrow. Substrate does not have to be changed ever! When you rehouse it to something bigger, you can use the same substrate, mixed with the new! The old sub scents familiair to the spider. The less you change substrate the better. I have tarantulas that hsve had the same substrate for 10nyears!
Ah, yes. Common names....
After reading title of this thread, I expected it be about H. devamatha or so. Like for real, C. fimbriatus is nice spider, but by no means matching my impression of violet color.
It's even worse, "violet tree spider" is common name of T. cupreus, and common name of T. violaceus is "purple tree spider". As **** logic, long live confusion...
