    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.
