Hi

My other half and me may be getting a red knee given to us. Any advice?
Temps, humidity and foods?

Google brachypelma smithi care sheet :)

temperament wise...my girl is not the friendliest.
She has always been quick to flick hairs and she is very fast, can't open her tub without her careering round it. Definitely not one for handling.
Generally they are supposed to be quite pleasant beasties though.

Brachypelma Best Brachy site on the web. Caresheet is basic but thats all they need.
Water dish (open dish), dry substrate, flowerpot hide and peat/verm mix for substrate.
Feed once a week on a couple of crickets or a locust. Change water weekly.
They dont do much hence the name...pet rocks. Brachypelma are my favourite genus :2thumb:

What substrate do you use and also what temps do you keep her at? Sometimes when Brachys are overly active they arent happy with something. How long have you had her?
