Hi everybody! I'm only a few months into owning my two gorgeous tarantulas. I've had Morticia (avicularia) for about 3 months now. Hector (Brachypelma albopilosum) has only been with me two weeks. Morticia is about 3 inches and Hector is probably .5. Morticia has molted once for me and I've noticed she has a very big appetite! Hector scavenged his first meal worm and is successfully burrowing. I had a tough time with Morticia building her web but after almost 2 months she had a decent funnel web spun. The only true question I have is cleaning her tank, there is a fungus that started and I spot cleaned it so I didn't tear down her web she just built. But I think the tank needs a cleaning. Any tips? Also, if you have run into any easy solutions or tips on these two species I would love to hear them. This is my first post so let me know if you want any more info!
