So, Dolby has got a breeding bug again, but as usual, there's nothing in the scorp side available at the moment (locally).

I've been wanting to give a try at T breeding from quite a while, and now I got the opportunity to get a Mature female and a S/A or MM B. albopilosum for a pretty good price.

What do you guys think, should I go for it, or should I spend that money in a random scorp/T instead?

I think you should go for it.

why not? if you have the cash to spare Smile

If you do, have a plan how to disseminate the slings when it comes up.
It can get quite overwhelming with the numbers.. lolz

Thanks for the "push" guys.

I'll probably get them next saturday, not 100% sure yet if they'll be an adult or subadult pair, as the original pair was sold out, but the breeder promised to match me a suitable pair for next saturday.

Free scorpion food if they don't sell fast enough? Very Happy

what size enclosure would you guys recommend me to use for the female, that would be enough to use for the mating attempts as well?

I have a spare 30cmX16cm, wondering if I'd need something bigger than that.

I would say bigget. Sometimes brachypelma like to lay giant egglaying webs. Maybe 45x45 would be good? Smile

Slightly larger would be beneficial, the male will have more room to make a proper introduction by approaching from one corner of the enclosure and after he has done his "thing", the extra room could be handy as well.

I would use a minimum of 30cm by 30cm (base area) or it's equivalent. But it could be just me Smile

30x30 would be an absolute minimum IMO. At least if you want to keep the male. Not that they are notorious man eaters, but just in case. The more space she has, the bigger chance of getting an eggsack also.

Yes, it is minimum and the concern raised are valid.
I think when the time comes up for the female to mature, DolbyR will most likely able to prioritize some space out for a larger tank Smile

Yeah Smile 1 "rule" i have made for myself is that the bottom areal is at least 10 times the spiders size. (When breeding.

How long after the last moult do the mating hooks of a male become visible? Should it be immediate, or does it take some time?

My male just molted last night, and I'm wondering if he's mature already or if I should be expecting another molt.

If you dont see hooks, he is not mature. Also he should have boxing gloves on his palps if he is mature Smile

Immediate. How big is he now, estimated?

Thanks guys.

Will try to get a measure as he need rehousing anyway. My guess would be 5-6cm body and 10-12cm legspan.

Definitely not an adult yet, no hooks or "boxing gloves" are visible yet.

Nah, I think he would need at least 2 molts more.

My sling keeps molting each 1-2 months or so. Not sure of the instar, I think around 7 or 8 now so a long way still to go Very Happy

Scorpeace, will soon post a pic with a scale to get a real idea of the size.
