While the one in the picture is not Pterinopelma sazimai, but basic idea is same. If what we are talking about is a sling. You want to keep it very simple and just focus on it’s well being, and well eating, and well molting.

P. sazimai can do fine with dry substrate, but they prefer slightly moist substrate. If you do get a sling, just know that they grow quite slow.

Very slow. My sazimai sling was my second T in my care. He (unable to sex but I always assume male until then) finally got through his first molt. Still the tiniest baby. Have owned him since early/mid September. But you’ll know that your sling is alive when your prekilled cricket plays Houdini and changes it’s location.

Cannot comment on the care for adults, but my sling is pretty cool so far. It's probably about 1/2" and loves to eat. Seems like a nice little sling so far and I'm excited to see it grow, just my experience in the month or so I've had it.

There’s nothing unusual about their care- same old story

Box
Sub

Slings should be kept on slightly moist sub, juvies and adults are fine with you just periodically overflowing the water dish.

They are pretty reclusive and photosensitive as slings so don't expect to see it much to start with, they do get bolder once they hit juvie sizes though.

I’m currently keeping mine in a vial with slightly damp substrate. Very responsive eater. Nailed a fairly large baby red runner as soon as I dropped it in. I did crush its head a little. Before that I was letting him scavenge. Had him at least a few months now and no sign of premolt.

I bought my sazimai slings, Ben & Jerry, at 1/4 inch. After about 13 months or so, they're around an inch and a half. Their care is pretty simple and what you described would be just fine. They are excellent eaters and only one of them has ever kicked hairs at me. At the moment, they look dark blue with low light and their legs are a beautiful purple with good light. One of them rarely hides, and the other rarely shows himself. Absolutely love them.
