Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      You need to post on www.arachnoboards.com

      She needs to be in a warm, humid area, peat moss and a dirt mixture is much better than those shavings.
      MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT PINE. Pine can kill tarantulas.
      She may be cold, and needs to have her tank warmed.

      Ask on arachnoboards, I don't know enough about fire legs to give you all the info you need.

      Also, unless the rocks you have stacked are secured with glue or something, you need to take them out. If they shift it could kill her.

      If she is your first tarantula, you really shouldn't have gotten a fire leg, a rose hair or chaco tarantula would have been easier.

      Yes, absolutely beautiful.. I was going to get one as my first, but decided I'd do better with a hardier and easier to care for species.
