I just received the six Lasiodora difficilis slings that I traded my millipedes for. They all look great, about 3/4" legspans.

I'm keeping them quarantined away from the rest of the slings just in case the mystery mold makes a reappearance in my collection. (No deaths in almost a week, still keeping my fingers crossed).

how often do you feed your spiderlings? hmm... 3-4 pinhead crickets per week?

I feed my little ones frozen, thawed beef heart and roach nymphs every other day or so.

It's a really economical way to feed them. Most small slings are scavengers in the wild, so they adjust really well to it. Even some of my larger spiders enjoy a chunk of heart from time to time.
