I usually use Jager glass heaters in the sumps.
The standard build (non-sump) 80gal. under the TV screen needed a different approach.
A compact heater with a guard.


- Thanks for all the tips.

Grasshoppers, crickets, Dubia blaptica cockroaches, and superworms have been offered to the tarantulas as for a feeding question answer.

There is an online fake news website that loves to make people jump.
They would answer, puppies or kittens, whichever is in sale.
In the wild, the correct answer is bugs or whichever she can get her mitts on.

Her genetic line comes from Brazil, in South America.
I have no idea if she is captive bred or if she was plucked just like our fish in our aquarium hobby.
After reading (at the library of course), I see that they are more difficult to breed than the others in that hobby.

Brazil is involvemed in some serious oxygen exchange.
These large sized tarantulas have "book lungs" that use oxygen like sheets of paper, breathing very slowly, and can survive in a stuffed up tunnel of dirt much better than we humans can.

Be thankful they are here.
They kindly put to sleep the little bugs that may be able to harm humans down the chain.

Thanks for the info! And I'm not squeamish of them, but just shocked at the size. I know there are some species even bigger, but the sight of seeing it in your hand is striking.

And you're definitely on the mark with the oxygen exchange comment. Spiders the size of rodents, rodents the size of dogs, like it's some primordial forest from millions of years ago.

Holy crap that thing is big.

But back to the tank(s)....I may have missed it, but what substrate are you using in the 80 gallon Deep Blue (with the rim)?

All the tanks in the room have either Black or White National Geographic sand.

I found 5 Chlamydogobius eremius gobies at a local shop this weekend.
They are likely female though.
The males are very pretty (as seen in the google image photo).

This 80 gallon is gaining speed toward a full goby theme someday.
The bumblebee gobies started it all.

We've used search engines everyday.
All we have is these two nice lists (below) to go on so far.

Our local stores are fairly half-arsing our interest in the gobies (and shrimp with some size (2-5inches).
We're practically waiving money in the air at this point looking for some connections.

Were excited and very interested in males gobies with some nice color as in the chichlid world.
Aren't we all though.

(Bottom-right, 1st photo of the 4) A little Adonis pleco is moving around.

-The water flow collects almost all the junk towards the right rear of the tank.
