Default I think I'm Addicted...

Well, i got my 2inch B.Albopilosum on friday, i got was supposed to be delivered the day before, but Royal Mail delivered it on the wrong day!!! The T only just made it, very close call as the heat pack ran out only hours before delivery
So i can't stop staring at the tank, I've watched the amazing little spider create what's now called it's home in such a fascinating way, it has moved substrate from the side of the tank where it's hide is and brought it to the top of it's hide...was doing this all day! It was fed last Sunday before i got it, so i'm not to sure on when to feed it as i don't want to leave the cricket in there too long as it might not want to come out of it's burrow still and i certainly don't want it to get scared and never come out again... lol..i spent 2 hours just staring at it last night doing this(hidden ofc), then my neck hurt so i was forced to sleep.

So anyway, to the point of my post, i think i'm addicted... I'm already browsing to get a New River Rust Rump and a B.Smithi...i haven't even had my first T for more than a week.(If anyone has any about 3-5cm, PM me) I've already said to my mother(as she owns me 10 pounds, (and is reluctant for me to decline this money) that she can buy me a small spider as a Christmas present)
Plus, i have way too many crickets for one spider
They are just such beautiful creatures, how can people hate them!!

I'll take a look into it, thanks Hopefully they are good for beginners, mines still a little nervous, but lucky for me it's burrowing at the side of the tank! If it decides to come out to the surface later then i might throw a small cricket in!

I started with spiders back in March and I now have 10 Ts of varying ages and sizes, brilliant the lot of them and last night both my Salmon Pink and B smithi thought they'd try eating the tongs instead of the roaches
