the only one i can speak about is the Red Knee (since i have one).

They enjoy dry dry DRY substrate so you won't need to be misting the ground often (or maybe even at all) just make sure there is a water source for drink/a bit of humidity.

Mine enjoys hiding so make sure there's a hide available. Moreover, they are a pretty docile tarantula (Mine isn't very active at all, it doesn't web or dig) However, i know the Red Knee slings like to dig about, so you might get lucky and get some entertainment.

Regardless, they sure are a "pretty" species.

Enjoy the new arrivals!

my Nhandu coloratovillosus is pretty calm, the odd time when i open the cage to feed, it will take off and hide. mine is pretty quick but has never shown any signs of aggression not even hair filcking.
they are a really good lookin T

i also have a P. cancerides but it is only about an inch long. it is really cool watching it eat. I've only had it for about 2 weeks so i'm still learning as well

hope this helps
