Ok.. so I have gotten no first hand info on these with days of trying... it appears i should keep them like flat rock's with a temp and RH range similiar to my grandidieri (one is preggo!!!) I will be setting up a large (40g breeder) as a communal tank with 3 10 gallons ready in case they are not so communal... I will try and post pics when its ready and use this thread to let everyone know what I have witnessed.

Good luck with them. I will be looking forward to your observations on them as I keep two Opisthacanthus sp but they are from South Africa.

this is what western madagascar is like.... nutshell... It is why my G grandidieri like water but also can deal with dry and it is the way I will strive to keep The Opisthicanthus.

" The western coast of Madagascar is much drier than the eastern coast. In general, we can say the climate here is dry tropical. During the dry months between May and November it does not rain at all and the temperatures are pleasant (20 to 25C on average). Between December and April it can rain torrentially or just a couple of showers, depending on the are and the year. The northern area is greener and indeed considerably wetter than the southern one. The hottest months are March, April, November and December, when the average temperature is 30 C or even more. "
