Anyone could help?

I had one die on me this morning, three days after a molt that seemed succesful cause it looked realy healthy (even throwing a threat posture at me mere hours out of it's exuvium cause i move the KK next to it!!!) but in 48 hours it went waeker and totaly noodle limp. It isn't in death curl, but remains noodle-soft and doesn't react at all.

I plan on replacing it and I'd like to know if they need a secial care (humidity, temp etc...) so I'll have my next one longer!!!

Keep spiderlings like this....



Keep adults like this....


Note I do not use KKs for species that like a moist environment. By doing it the way I do, you keep them nice and humid. A KK will alow it to dry up too fast. For substrate I use moist peat but the coco stuff will work well too
