0.1 Kochiana brunnipes, 0.0.1 Cyriocosmus elegans and 0.0.1 Neoholothele incei "gold". I would have taken pictures but even the female juvenile K. brunnipes is tiny. They look nice setting next to my Hapalopus sp. "Columbia" large. Great hobby this is.

Nice! Those are some beautiful spiders!

I'm getting ready to start collecting dwarf species, too. I almost picked up a subadult female Cyriocosmus perezmilesi at the Reptile Super Show last Sunday, but decided to hold out for C. elegans instead - and I've been kicking myself for passing on her ever since! :banghead:

It's not a great idea to keep your feeders and their food next to your Ts. Both can attract mites, which will make their way to your Ts. Crickets often have mites when you get them. ;)

I HATE mites.

Very good thoughts. That's why I don't do crickets. The one ok is my failing attempt at superworms.
