You should also get rid of those stones (or whatever it is, hard to tell from the picture).

Stones aren't usually a problem as long as not near the walls. Thats a pretty dark G. Pulchripes. I love that T. My old girl passed not so long ago.

Congratz on the new addition :)

Looking good. Like you said I'd add more substrate (to the points of mostly burying the hide) and get that ceiling distance down. The water dish is fine but you could go with one smaller if you want. Other then that it looks good to me.

Fill it just over halfway, you will want to leave room...should the t burrow, and pulchripes often do, its going to need space up top to put all that substrate.

I've had that happen a time or two. I think they were just startled by me placing the food. I left it in and it was picked up quickly.

I'd leave it in overnight and if it's not eaten the next day take it out. It could be close to molting though my four ate all the way till two days before the molt.

Yea that's what I figured just thought I would check shes not quit the eater my red rump is but still learning her behaviors so well see if she's eaten if not I'll remove them the people I got here from would just throw in a couple crickets and leave them tell they dies or she ate them so it will take some growing used to the routine for her aswell but I believe she will be better of

Yeah, if they threw in a lot of prey at once that was not eaten that could be stressful and why she is posturing so much. I'd let her get used to the one prey item per feeding. When she gets in the habit of that then move the prey size up as needed. IMO if she is better with smaller I'd feed the smaller and just cut down on the time between feedings.
