:) Good luck & have fun! I just got my first one at the beginning of the month & on advice from forum members here, I bought "The Tarantula Keeper's Guide". It's VERY informative. The members here are also fantastic & always ready to help!

Good for both of you, David30 and m0nay. My collection has grown to occupy a room of its own, but I've still got a couple Rosies that I really like. Good spider to start with - and good spider to keep long afterwards too.

Congratulations! I know it's exciting! When we were waiting on our first t to arrive, I really felt like a kid waiting on Santa.

I might have suggested getting the enclosure set up before bringing the T home... How big is it? Spiderlings need higher humidity, but larger juvies and adult roseas generally like their substrate dry. Mine prefer bone dry, or they stress out and pace the walls and ceilings...
