Would feeding 2-3 crickets a week to a 3" (17-months-old) F B. smithi be considered power-feeding?
The more you feed it the faster it will grow, and the faster it will die. For me and my brachys I feed alot when they are smaller till they are around the 4 inch mark then go to once a week if that for a feeding schedue. I like to feed alot when young so they are easier in general to care for. However this might mean I took of a few years of the Ts overall life span, in my opinion for a T that might live 25-30 years thats fine with me.
Easy solution Saddlepatch, get more Tarantulas, lol.;PIt's just that all the petstores around here only sell crickets in dozens, and I always end up just taking out one for my T; the others all die throughout the week. It's a big waste. :wall: Wish I had more animals to feed em to...
