i have been thinking about purchasing a pink toe tarrantula or two.i read you can put them together in a tank as long as there is adquit food . so how many of u have actualy had one eat the other one. are there any step i can take to prevent this or is it best to keep them seperated

Some of the pinktoes, as well as some of the ornamentals, can be kept in groups. I don't know what the success rate is, but I do know that any time you choose to do this you are taking a risk. Is it a risk you are willing to take? Personally, the only time I let them live together is for breeding, then it is only a few days to a week at most, then they get separated.
If you are willing to end up with a possibly eaten or injured T, it can be done. I don't feel comfortable taking the chance.

It's not anywhere near that easy, there IS no 100% or even very likely guarantee, and even then they can only live together peacefully until the day they decide they can't. Why waste a perfectly good second tarantula?
