    I am looking for some advice. I dont like spiders but for some odd reason I have agreed to let my partner have a spider. I have never owned a spider and tbh I am dreading it. My partner hasnt owned a spider in a longtime. I have looked at some tarantulas and have made a shortlist of the 3 that maybe best suitable.

    Martinique Pink Toe
    Giant White Knee
    Chaco Golden Knee

    What do you guys think and can you give me some feeding tips, tank set-ups etc.

    Am looking to purchase one as a spiderling so i can get used to it as it grows.

    Any helpful tips,advice etc very much appreciated.

    I haven't got any spiders only the ones without glass. If I was to get one I'd get a Chilean Rose. I held one the other day. Apparently them and red knees are the best ones to get first. I watch a bloke on you tube called TarantulaGuy. He's got loads he even recommends getting the 2 I've mentioned first.

    Yeah I watched his videos the other day. Everybody has a chilean rose so talking to friends of mine who have spiders, i went for a lovely white knee that we named Relentless.
