Hi guys i've just done a search of the boards for this spider but can't really find any decent info on temps/humidity or any other type of general info. I've no idea what the common name is.

Can anyone help me.?

Eric (GoTerps) is the Tap sp. Master. Look for the username GoTerps & send him a PM. Or better yet, hopefully he'll come on here so most of us can learn as well.

Tap species info

Fang from Venom list:
"Taps are aboreal, FAST! Sleek and shiny. Shy and like
to spend their time in their tube web.
Keep the tap in tall enclosure with corkbark or something
like it leaned to one side, as they will attach tube web too.
Keep like avics. Misting, keep substrate moist.
Taps, Psalms (and avics) have a propensity to double clutch
after breeding. So surprise eggsacs are common.
You won't see the tap real often, but when they do appear
they will make up for it. Beautiful species.
Plumipes, elenae, purpurea and cupreus. "

if you need further info on this species please post on the VL and he will answer. He keeps all of these Taps personally.
