Hi All,

It has been a while since my last visit to the forum. I hope everyone is well.

I do not know if anyone can remember, but I've got a G. rosea who just refused to eat for months on end. Well she finally started eating and I went through the same mixed emotions one would go through when your child takes a first step.

Since she first ate, she has been eating often, but her enclosure keeps getting a horrible smell. I know if you don't bother to take out crickets, they die and the enclosure eventually starts to smell, but I always take out uneaten crickets. I've replaced the peat now a few times and cleaned out the enclosure but the smell comes back within a few days.

Is there some logic to this and can it be unhealthy to the T?

Hope someone can help.

My Species:

Acanthoscurria Geniculata
Brachypelma Vagans
Holothele Incei
Nhandu Chromatus
Cyclosternum Fasciatum
Grammostola Porteri

Hi. To me it sounds like your sub might be to moist.

I don't know if you have red this page by uncle Stan.


I really hope that helps. Never nice when things don't go like they are supposed to.

Can you maybe post pictures of the enclosure?

It is the first time I have heard of a enclosure smelling bad for no reason.

What kind of smell is it?
Is the tank new or used?
What kind of substrate are you using?
Do you have plants and decorations inside?
Do you use bark?
What kind of lids are using?
When you rehoused the spider did you wash the enclosure with something?
