I'm fortunate enough to be able to obtain a couple of these this afternoon, but can find very little info on successfully raising to adulthood.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks. I just picked them up. I am now reasonably certain that I have obtained not an A. bicolor, but in fact an A. australis sling. It is very much a light tan/yellow color, and the final metasomal segment and telson are a darker greyish color. I also picked up an R. junceus sub adult while I was there.

I had already researched adult care, but was mostly wondering abot sling care, in particular their water requirements. I appreciate you being so proactive in your effort to help me out though!
