Two weeks is a bit early. I would wait 2-3 weeks more. Let him harden up some more. Look for evidence of a sperm web being made. Also feed him in the next few days if he eats. Then let him take a chance at courting your girl.

I would introduce him right after you see him making a sperm web or find the remains of one. That'll let you know when to put him in and that he is ready. Good luck!

This is a male Grammostola rosea, but you'd be looking for something like this I would assume.



Note: It says it's copyrighted to Demonhunter, but that was what I was known as here before I changed my display name to Novak. Old picture.

and if you don't catch him in the act, here is usually how the remains usually look..

This picture shows the remains of a week old sperm web from a Cyclosternum fasciatum.

chencho yo tampoco entiendo que paso aunque ya he visto que eso pasa muy a menudo :(

Tony, was your female well fed before introducing him? that suxs. I've never bred before but from what I've read it's advisable to stuff the female with food before the event...and even then sometimes the male gets eaten anyway..it's just one of those things :(
