Product Details

Nickelsi is was previously regarded as a subspecies of P. bolivari, but is now classified as a species all its own. Nickelsi displays flared skirting at their hind end, lending a unique prehistoric look. Males have longer uropods than females and at full adulthood are easily sexed. This species is naturally found in caves of Spain.

They need good air circulation to thrive, and we recommend 2"+ of dead air space to achieve this. Cardboard or bark should be made available for animals to cling to the underside of and escape the substrate. At least half of the setup should be completely dry, but 1/4-1/3 should be moist for gravid females and mancae to thrive. Our culture is fed fish flakes, weekly vegetables, decaying wood and is thriving in a 25L storage tote.
