Chrelan : most likely your tarantula is on premolt stage, keep the humidity up and it will be fine Smile

Bro sa pagkakaalam ko eh terrestrial talaga ang mga lampropelma...pero people tend to set it up as an arbo pag malaki na. Just keep the substrate wet lagi and yes dapat maganda vents ng enclo mo make holes sa ibabaw and sa sides para me cross ventilation kse pag nde magiging masyado mainit at maluluto yung Ts mo. thumbs up

you're welcome =)

L. Violaceopes are arboreal by nature and is actually opportunistic. They also appreciate height compared to floor space as they will typically only settle in a corner and occasionally perch on the bark Smile

Nawala ata yun una kong post.

Hope this helps. Taken from Malaysian Tarantula Society


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Common name : Singapore Blue
Scientific Name : Lampropelma Violaceopes (Abraham 1924)
Origin of Range : Malaysia’s Rainforest specifically in the Southern Part, Singapore and Indonesia
Habitat : Highland tropical rainforest
Class : Opportunistic
Temperament : Defensive
Temperature : 27 ° c to 30 ° c
Humidity : 50% to 85%
Life Span : Male mature within a year, usually die out few months after maturity. Females live up to 10 years or more.
Growth Rate : Fast
Full Grown Size : Measured by leg span, females may reach up to 9 inches Male usually reach up to 5 to 6 inches.


Taxonomical History:
The taxonomic origins of this tarantula are technically complex. They were initially known as Cyriopagopus sp ‘Blue’ but recently as Lampropelma Violaceopes. This is not the only confusion made by taxonomic progress; they were also mistaken for other tarantula species such as Malaysian Blue Femur (Haplopelma Robustum), and even Ornithoctoninae sp ‘Malaysia’. This is because of some similar characteristics these tarantulas have.

It is however believed that the description of this species fit most with the described Lampropelma Violaceopes made by Abraham, 1924. Nonetheless, this is still unconfirmed. Perhaps the easiest way to name this tarantula would be by its common name known as Singapore Blue.

Sexual Dimorphism:

Lampropelma violaceopes; as the name implies, viola literally means violet. This however only refers to juvenile and female. As mentioned, female grow up forming royal purple coloration while male are emerald green upon maturity.

Info on Husbandry:

Enclosure:

Although arboreal by nature, this specie is actually opportunistic. A nice bark would usually be preferred as this provides a hiding place for the tarantula. They also appreciate height compared to floor space as they will typically only settle in a corner and occasionally perch on the bark in search for food.

Diet:

Diets in the wild are usually insects or small birds. As such, crickets, grasshoppers, super worms and pinkie are options for their diet in captivity.
