I currently own a growing 4 maybe (just molted again) fast growing female Sapphire Gooty Tarantula I got from a retailer online in the US. I have had a fear of spiders all my life and wanted to just get over it once and for all. I have a deep respect for this creature and have a decent vertical enclosure and was good for the time she was smaller. I am now coming to the point where she will need to be re housed in a larger enclosure meant for Tarantulas I have found on the internet. Now when I read that to move the gooty to another tank use a paint brush? Has to be a mighty long paint brush for me. I keep getting fears of it jumpin on the brush and b-lining for my hand. Defensive/AGGRESSIVE is all I see. For one I'm not allowed this species and two I am not looking to find out what a spider of this calibre can feel like and going to the emerg and explaining what did it. LOL. Is there any other way I can move this thing? I've been thinking about going outside even so if it goes bad its not loose in the apartment and killing my cats. Anyways any help if anyone looks at this would be greatly appreciated

    I have a 5 month old male and I love him so much. He stays in the house with a cat & 3 dogs. They play all the time. The dogs go out in the daytime and he goes too when I go out with him. I would love to have a female too so he can have a companion.

I've had my rose hair for over 15 years she used to eat regularly and molt once a year she hasnt molted in almost 4 years now and she has rejected all food i have offered for the last year or so is she at the end of her life cycle or is this normal for older tarantulas?

    Females can live up to 20 years, so maybe she is getting ready to molt.

    Sorry if you late to help, but iv had friends whose Rose hairs didn't eat for 2+ years, these awesome tarantulas act so different from one another even tho there the same species,but yeah, rose hairs are sooo unpredictable...I'm so glad mine burrows and makes itself a awesome lil chill spot most people say they'res just sit and don't do much so I'm real happy I got a real active Rose hair...she is such an kick ass tarantula!!!

I keep the block heads in a 4 foot cichlid tank containing fish like the severum, the uaru, yellow labs, firemouth and more. I have kept fish for over a decade now and of all the species I have kept, these boys fascinate me more than any other species. I find they get an unfair write up for being too aggressive which is simply not the case. I recommend any fish lover to try these gorgeous little creatures.

    I have a one inch ad a two inch. There is no way to know if they are the same sec or not, right?

I have had a pair for about a year now. They have been living with bala sharks, gouramis, tiger barbs, and even an oscar large enough to eat both of them. They are tough enough to fight off the oscar and have proven that on several occasions. As far as the fish go they all get along very well. They are now getting ready to spawn. They have taken over a large section of the tank that the oscar won't even go to. Aside from their recent territorial displays they are by far the coolest fish in the tank more personality than the oscar.

    It's good to hear that they can hold their own. Thx for sharing..

I keep 4 of these in a small (3ft\120L) community tank and I've found them to be perfectly well behaved with regards to other fish. They occasionally chase each other around but as my tank is heavily aquascaped they don't cross paths that often, and it seems the fighting is only for show as they will spend other times swimming together in a pack. They're fascinating to watch, and remind me a lot of marine blennies and gobies in the way they move and dart from resting place to resting place. An all round excellent community fish in my opinion, and hopefully their reputation for being nasty becomes a thing of the past.

    Are the males ad females the same color? only the male gets the hump on the head?

I have kept a single Buffalo Head male before untill about 3.5 inches and he was by far one of my coolest chiclids. And he was in the with a mix of Haps, Peacocks, South American and multiple Africans I kept him in my 72 gal. bowfront. I traded-in all my chiclids and went salt for a few years, but I made the switch back to fresh and the first fish I got was a small group of 4, 1.25 inch Buffalo Heads I can't wait to watch them pair up and hopefully have a successful brood! They are awesome fish to just kick-it and gaze at.

i have a 55 gallon tank with a 12 inch albino pleco a 6 inch female convict and 2 two inch red eyed tetras. My tank is about 3 yrs old. Last week i added 2 two inch yellow peacock cichlids. These fish are not really supposed to be compatible. My fish are all rescues as i live out in alaska its hard to buy fish here. Anyway, my tetras took to the peacock cichlids they school together beautifully. They all swim loops around my convict. My tetras are mean little fin nippers, very aggressive. Why do they reccomend them for docile aquariums?

    I know the OP won't see this as he posted long ago, but for readers who see it, the reason the red eye tetras are "mean little fin nippers" is because they are insecure because the OP only had two and they are schooling fish. They need to be in groups of 6 or more of their own species. And they won't be safe with cichlids. Cichlids are not community fish. I would have suggested he set up a second small tank for the red eyes and put the two of them in their alone, if he can't get more of them. They won't feel as threatened if they are the only fish in the tank.
