You wont be disappointed :)

I have a juvenile that is just showing adult colour now. Gorgeous. I also have 2 slings that eat anything I give them. Like most Avics, they can be skittish and are fast but none of mine have ever been defensive apart from 1 amazonica and 1 versi but that was during rehousing lol.

Purps are loverly :D! I got 2 lil spiderlings and they're fab.

Kept a bit different to other Avics though... they gotta be kept dry but humid, they don't like the wet... :)

So spraying but keep the substrate pretty damp would be ok?
I'm still ok for the orange beasty from you when the p.order arrives??:2thumb:

No you want the substrate to be dry! Not wet. Gently mist the sides once a week.. don't keep the tub wet. Make sure its really well ventilated.

Yeah course, waitin on the postal order :)
