    All of the ones mentioned would be good beginner tarantulas. As far as books, There are 2 that I would recommend. The Tarantula Keeper's Guide (known as the bible to tarantula people) and Tarantulas and Other Arachnids: A Pet Owner's Manual which is one of the Baron's series of books.
    I hope to covert all of you to the tarantula and scorpion cause lol :D

    Well it worked now that I know what books to pick up I will definatly be getting a couple. People already say my house is a zoo wait til they hear this. I was thinking about getting one from Swift Inveratbrets have you delt with these people before?? If not heres the link I want spiderlings to start with. Is this a good choice or a bad one. What would you recommend???

    I have ordered several times from Swift's and yes he is good. You will always get a freebie with him. I think spiderlings are just fine to start out with.
    Oh, about 1/2 of the ones in the pictures came from Swift's ;)

    Brian, a little off topic, but do you ever have any mold happen in any of your substrates, especially peat?

    I used to but I was keeping it too damp. I keep all my adults on bone dry peat now. I do keep small spiderlings a little more moist but I also provide enuff ventilation so that it will dry out between mistings. I also use a water dropper for spiderlings and will put 2-3 drops on their web especially after a molt because they will be dehydrated.. Adults only need a wide and shallow water dish IMO.
