Got some of these beauties last week along with the Bantua, here are some pictures of a nymph:

I wish you good luck with them. 

Have you got helpful hints how to breed them?

Greetings, Marco

Thanks! :) I do actually, after talking with people breeding this species, it appears they do best when one corner of the enclosure is kept moist, while the rest is kept dry, they also appreciate bark and branches to climb on, and they have pretty large appetites for Gyna

Just found an adult female in the enclosure last night, she's pretty dark, but very pretty nonetheless! :D
