How do you care for tarantulas? Can you keep them in the same cage (or whatever you keep tarantulas in )?

Since bettas usually can't be kept together, space is an issue and so is the expenses of buying and setting up multiple tanks. I only have one fish right now. But after I looked in the betta aisle at Petco, I suddenly want another! haha

tarantulas are solitary animals as well. You can keep them in large critter keepers but once again they prefer big cages. Long shallow ones with a lid lol. The like sand bedding and the bark like bedding (forgetting what it actually is) and the mossy kind (think wild natural habitat). Crickets and insects for food and a very shallow water dish. Fresh water every day and make sure its not too deep. They go into the dish to drink and it needs to be shallow. Once a month go through the tank and clean it; sweeping up old webs, dead crickets etc etc. You can add decorations for them to crawl on and a hidey hole.

I've personally never had a tarantula but I kept a wolf spider for 8 months before she laid eggs and died. My ex's father had 2 really big ones though. Pretty things!

If any of it is wrong please correct me, I'd hate to be giving the wrong info!

I don't think I'd ever be interested in owning a tarantula, although it does sound like an interesting pet to look after!

I think most would have over 40 bettas here, but the problem is separate tanks for them all and the work involved in water changes, and just general care, so it makes it difficult for most ppl to keep that many

I have 15 bettas and I'm not a breeder. I have to agree about space and maintance. Those two things can stop someone from getting tons of bettas. I'm almost at my max now.
