Well hopefully at the end of this week I will be ordering my Diplocentrus species. The ones that are advertised D.spitzeri as in previous thread.

Knowing that these come from arizona / mexico, found in the more mountainous regions. I'd like some feedback on how to keep them.

1) are they communal???
2)Was going to use sand as substrate with the odd rock here and there, should i mix a little forest bed in with the sand to make it more burrow friendly substrate. obviously water bowl too Smile
3) was planning on daytime temp of 27-29 degrees C and room temp on the night. which is about 20degree's C
4) Any other info that would be useful?

cheers me dears xxx

1) No. At least, I seem to remember hearing a "no" to that question. scratch
2) I found them on good old-fashioned dirt when I was in Texas -- only one of them (probably a gravid female) had an actual "burrow," and the rest were just hiding under rocks. Mine only ever hides under its rock (D. lindo).
3) Possibly a tad high . . . it was nice and toasty when I was in Texas where we found them, but it tends to stay on the cool side under the rocks. As long as they have somewhere to escape the heat that should be OK, though.
4) Um . . . not that I can think of.
