Hi,

I used to keep these guys when I was younger. The other day I saw that Swift's had some in stock, so I ordered myself one. While I wait for it to arrive, are there any suggestions for husbandry/enclosures that work best for this species? I'm looking for ideas.

Thanks!

Emilio

I kept a couple in a 32 oz deli cup with a vertical piece of wood for them to build their tube webs. Probably better ways though. Keep them fairly humid, especially when younger. Minimize disturbance if possible. @Aphonopelma81 keeps these I think?

@pannaking22 the cutie arrived today! The sling is tiny, 1/8th of an inch! I'm keeping it in a tiny vial with some coco fiber that it already made a purse web with, do you think that set up is good? (Also I got my LP freebie and I couldn't be happier :D)
