Ok, I just got a 1 inch P.reduncus sling today and am assuming I can keep this as I would my P.irminia. I know P.reduncus is an arboreal from Costa Rica.

The conditions I have kept my P.irminia under since it was a 3/4 inch sling (now a 4.5 inch sub-adult) have been as follows: 65-85F and 70-85% humidity on a substrate of 100% peat which I never allow to dry out. Fed regularly with the appropriate sized cricket.

Will the same conditions I have used for my P.irminia be acceptable for the P.reduncus. Also can I expect a similar temperment as well?

The adult reduncas I've had were pretty nervous and prone to defensive displays, like irminia, pulcher and cambridgei. Since they do occur in Costa Rican rainforests, 80% median humidity is probably fine, as with the other Psalmos.
