I've been keeping P. bicolor for the last several years. I acquired 3 adults about 8 years ago and they are still doing well. They are quite large, my female weighs 3/4's of a pound so as much space as you can give them with emphasis on vertical. For a pair I would suggest 30 to 36 " length and at least 18" height with sturdy horizontal branches. I don't use a substrate at all. They will descend to feed and their feeding style will easily cause them to ingest alot of bedding. I keep both a heat light and UV tube on mine. My three have been exclusively cricket eaters for the last few years after I finally gave up on getting them to take anything else. I would stick to the soft bodied larval insects though and avoid things like roaches unless they're newly molted. Nose abrasions tend to happen during shipping, once they have sufficient space that behaviour diminishes. Mine arrived with lesions on their feet (stress related I believe) which I treated with tetracycline ointment. Use a dish that they can comfortably sit in, so at least 6 inches across. Although I have read care sheets that suggest spraying them I never have, I have always treated them much like P. sauvagii which I also keep.
