Thanks, I agree, the vials that they were shipped in were just fine for shipping. Just large enough to let them turn around and small enough to get them to the location.ballpython2 said:when my avicularia vesicolors where 1 inch I kept them in the flukers cricket food jar. i was told vials were not good to keep T's in if they arent being shipped.
I was mainly wondering does anybody use a water dish for a small 1" toe_to_toe Avicularia?Drachenjager said:well i never had an avic but i kept my 1 inch sling in a 4" deli cup im sure it would be ok for the avic too
Thanks, I just misted them for the second time this week.talkenlate04 said:No I have a few dozen slings and they dont get water dishes, but they do get misted twice a week. If I dont mist it gets way to dry. Plus I can watch the little guys drink up from the sides, or their existing webbing.
No problem, I use the one fluid ounce super thin plastic medicine cups that I cut in half to about 1/2 of a fluid ounce to give water to all of my 1.5 inch Avicularia.versicolor and to all of my 2.5 inch Avicularia.bicegoi. I have only seen my Avicularia.bicegoi get a drink so far. Hey, please post some pics of your metalica when you get it.Drachenjager said:oh lol i misunderstood. I put a water dish in with my P. cancerides sling when it was about 1.5" and it was a DP bottle cap.
I am not sure tho but i think that an avic will drink more water drops than from a dish, and the dish is more for humidity?>?>?
I am getting an Avic metallica pretty soon so i better figgure this out myself .. but i think its more like 3" so a dish wont be a prob..
Thanks.cheetah13mo said:I don't use any sort of dish until they reach around 2 inches. Until that happens, like Talkenlate04 said, I mist the web once or twice a week but most of the moisture a sling will get will be from the food.
Thanks.Novak said:Just mist the sides with water every couple of days. Avics prefer to drink off the sides of the walls as well.
Thanks, I am really looking forward to seeing them as adults. I heard that the Giant Amazon Pinktoe gets very large. I was fortunite enough to get 5 of them.Novak said:great looking slings, I can't wait to see the adult colors. :}
It is like that where I live. After a heavy rain last night it is currently 41% humidity and it will be around 30% tommorrow. I do frequent misting. I have had 8 molts so far with no problems but I do worry about a bad molt happening.kyrga said:I use soda caps as water dishes with my 1.5" slings, one of which is an a.avic. The humidity where I live is typically 20-40% most of the year, and never really goes above 65% inside my house, so I'm always afraid of them getting dehydrated. I also mist about once a week.
