Hi, all I am from Canada and Ireland also, just because of my parent's nationality.
After having my fish tank empty for a while, I've finally decided to refill it, but this time I'm doing something new: research! I'm still debating whether to get freshwater or saltwater fish. I think a marine system would be lovely, but I know it will be more expensive and labor-intensive than a freshwater arrangement. Do you have any suggestions for covering the back glass pane with a black background?
Thank you ahead of time.

hello! I'm from Jakarta, Indonesia. Back to keeping Tarantulas again after few month ago my pulchripes and tripepii escape from their enclosure and my birupes passed away. :bigtears:

Currently I have Balfouri and Vagans.

Hi everyone! I'm a newish keeper based in New Mexico. I started doing more research on spiders/inverts last year after my life long arachnophobia was getting out of control. Jumping spiders were the gateway - now I have four jumpers and two T's (G. pulchra male / T. albopilosus female) with a growing wishlist! Really enjoying the hobby and appreciate all the great info available here on arachnoboards!!
You can also find me on insta @arachnegram

Hi everyone! I'm a new tarantula owner as of last week. I went all in (although some of you may not think so!). I had planned to get one and ended up getting four. I did quite a bit of reading and watching videos, especially Toms Big Spiders and the Tarantula Collective. My "bible" is on the way. I know I've barely scratched the surface in what I need to learn, and that is why I'm here. Luckily, I enjoy learning new things, and I probably have too many hobbies.

As for me, I'm a 42-year-old geologist from Houston. I have a two-year-old son, and a little tarantula lover in the oven.

Hi our names are Drew and Danielle, we run a small Instagram and YouTube for our hobby of tarantulas and other soon to be exotics, we were both born near the east coast of the United States and live in a kinda small town. We have both always been into watching and learning about local wildlife and hope to grow our collection and understanding of the all these fantastic creatures, local and exotic. We especially enjoy tarantulas and other inverts, being able able to watch and learn their habits. We plan to expand more into more creatures and eventually help teach people about these creatures and help people who are scared an understanding of them.

Hi! I can't have spiders right now but I like them a lot and I'm interested in keeping invertebrates, insect photography, etc. in general. I'm pretty new to it and this seemed like one of the most active places to share thoughts and ask questions. Thanks for having me!

My name is Mandy and I posted for the first time yesterday, but have been coming here for information for a while. I appreciated being politely corrected on my husbandry and have rectified the situation. I’m 45 and got my first T back in May (it’s never too late). I have a young E. campestratus and a slightly bigger A. avicularia (arrived four days ago). I also have a Blizzard leopard gecko and have been keeping reptiles, fish and amphibians for years. Looking forward to my time here!

Hi,

I amd Lee. From the UK. Very long time lurker from circa 2004. Been in the hobby since around the same point in time. Have a wide variety of mainly new world T's.

Wondered if anyone knows what happened to a bloke known as Brian S. I remember speaking with him a long time ago either here or via Bugnation, when that was a forum.

Anyhow, nice to meet you all.

Welcome, @moxteu
You'd probably get a better response to your question in the Not so Spineless Wonders forum (non-arachnid pets!):


or even the "Vivariums and Terrariums" forum. I think there are quite a few fish keepers here.
