Mineral Water for Tarantulas? Are we kidding? No… we’re not. Better appetite, better health, better molts and more…

It’s actually great for ALL animals.

Araña Mineral Water© has higher mineral content than any  mineral water you normally buy in shops. Araña Mineral Water© is made by us, with pure filtered reverse osmosis water (Starting TDS of 10 or less) and a specially prepared high concentration of essential minerals & trace elements that will give your tarantulas (and all your little monsters) a healthy boost like they’ve never known.

This was sent to us by customers that had sickly tarantulas:

“So we had an old male in death curl yesterday. Gave him some Araña mineral water and he was bolting again 30min later 😱” – Joeline, Tarantula Obsession

“Another victory for your water… 3 days in ICU and a full recovery, its trying to web up the ICU and gives me a threat pose if I open the lid. That’s from complete death curl and almost no response except twitching spinnerets… Electrolytes are absolutely key to recovery.” – Prof. Jonathan Taylor

How to use it

NORMAL USE: This is healthy water loaded with healthy minerals.  You can use it every day to top up your pet water dishes, or only once every few water top-ups as a health and hydration supplement. 

I.C.U: This water is an amazing first-aid assistant. We’ve seen it do amazing things for sickly tarantulas placed in ICU. In severe cases where the tarantula can barely move, turn the tarantula on it’s back and use a dripper or pipette to place droplets of water on the tarantula’s mouth parts so it can drink. This water is excellent for hydration and for replacing any minerals that a sickly tarantula is missing due to not eating. This helps them to recover from the inside out, naturally.

BREEDING: We want our tarantulas in top form when breeding. If it makes sense that hobbyists gut-load feeder insects with vitamins so that our tarantulas benefit from them, why not supply them with high-octane mineral rich water that will keep them in top shape as well? We at MyMonsters.co.za use this water right through the breeding process. The results speak for themselves.

So what’s in it?

Nothing but clean, filtered reverse osmosis H²O (water) and a special mix of natural healthy minerals and trace elements.

Description

Over many years working with tarantulas, my most recent personal discovery as a hobbyist and tarantula keeper, is mineral water. One day while mating a Harpactirella lightfooti pair, the female lunged at and attacked the male. She was successful and inflicted two solid fang holes, one in his abdomen and one on the carapace, both wounds were leaking fluid. I rescued him, but within minutes he was already curling his legs underneath himself, which is usually a fatal death curl. I decided to place him in a sterile ICU (Just a clean dry tub with dry tissue) and placed a large very shallow water dish beneath him with just a few mm of water in it. I happened to have a bottle of mineral water near me that I bought earlier in the day, so I just used it instead of normal tap water. I placed him fangs down in the water and rested his abdomen on the side so his lungs didn’t lay in water.

Within a day or two, not only were his wounds sealed up, he had made a new sperm web. This was amazing to me, I’d never seen a spider with severe injuries like this recover so quickly. I could only think the water had some part to play. So I immediately started experimenting with different types of mineral water and giving it to all my tarantulas, especially those that I bought in collections and were in bad shape.

Araña Mineral Water©, is now a special mix of minerals and trace elements in a much higher concentration than any normal drinking mineral water and is proving to be a wonder supplement for tarantulas. Without a doubt, the difference is visible. You will notice your tarantulas regain health very quickly, are more active, more responsive, recover their appetite and in general move around with a little more zest. We have yet to see how it benefits other animals as well…

Saved a Psalmopoeus irminia – Suntiger 4cm juvenile/sling that was in a death curl and barely moving, with this water.

Saved a Tliltocatl albopilosus – Curly that had a completely deflated abdomen and was in a death curl and barely moving, with this water.

Saved a mature male Neoholothele incei that overnight went in to a death curl and was barely moving by morning. Within a few hours we was eating again.

Saved the abovementioned Harpactirella lightfooti mature male with this water.

So for me, personally. Quality water is now part of the hobby. End of story. My Tarantulas eat well, molt well and breed well. That’s all I can ask for.
