    Our Hobbyist of the month (April)



    Ako si Trex : Your Friendly Neighborhood Hobbyist of the Month: For April

    Name: Rex V. Seno
    Location: Guizo, Mandaue City
    Contact: 0921-4423423
    Still not Available

    Dats all about me….hehehe

    About my hobby:
    Nagsugod ko ani na hobby last April 2009…1 yr. old pa ko..newbie pa jud ko.

    I was really interested about big spiders and scorpions since my high school days. But I was not into spider fighting…
    Then I saw mga salida sa sine & TV about tarantulas…arachnophobias. I really got fascinated by them.

    Dream ra jud toh nako, because I never thought this animals would be available here in the phils., especially diri sa Cebu… until April of last year. A relative of mine showed me his 2” Tarantula and how he got it thru istorya.net. That got me very excited na makakuha na jud kog tarantula. From there, I researched jud og mau sa net before deciding on what to buy first, and until now I'm still researching sa net.

    The first ever T that I got is a rosea, then b. smithi, n. coloratovillosus (they are still with me) and then some……So karon napun.an na gamay, unya adik nakong dako.hahaha..affraid

    At first my wife frowned on what I was doing….tarantulas, scorpions, geckos, roaches, crickets, worms….very unusual sa amo balay.

    Then maybe because very unique jud ni sila, na intriga man pod sila, until naka.adopt na sila sa akong environment…hehe
    ……now my wife and my small girl ganahn na sa ako pets. My wife even brought my emperor and a rosea to school to show to the students. Of course under my supervision, “NO HANDLING, For Your Eyes Only”

    Ako Set up:
    My set-up for my inverts is very simple, para sayun ra pag.maintain. I’m not much into decorating my set-ups, unless gamiton para exhibit

    I’m using cocopeat as substrate; I put clay plant pot as hide which I cut into half. Also water dish for the bigger ones. I always check the enclosures for dryness or wetness sa substrate. I seldom spray mist sa sides sa enclosures…I directly spray into the substrate. Because I think water in the sides easily evaporate, while sa substrate mas dugay ang evaporation. Observation lang nako nah.

    For my bigger Ts, ako gamit kai 12” X 8” X 8” na glass aquarium. Pero ang uban gisud pa nako og plastic enclosures kai wa pa budget for glass….tigum2X lang unah.

    Feeding:
    I used to feed my inverts every day or basta mokaon….when they were still slings. Now I still feed my slings everyday as much as possible; and for more than 2” kai every 3 – 4 days na, sometimes moabot og 1 week or more. My main menu is lateralis, then sometimes lobster roaches or superworms.

    Next day after feeding, I remove all feed remains & pop…kai dali ra modaghan ang mites kun biya.an lang ang feed leftovers.

    For ants prevention, I place small cups filled with used cooking oil in the legs of the shelf/stand. I also “write“ baygon chalk on the legs, walls, floors…almost anywhere na mabadlisan. So far very minimal man ang ant infestation sa invert room. But I never loosen my guard against ants. This also kills other escapees…lats, worms, slings…...

    Invert Crib
    I have a small room where I put most of my arachnids and feeders and other stuffs. This helps restrict unwanted useseros. This room is quite hot during summer days. My bigger tarantulas & scorpions that are in the aquariums, tua sa silong sa balay, for display na …hehehe

    Pls. ask lang for more details. Promo ends until supply lasts…. lol!
    Tanx folks
