As with all Avicularia species, good ventilation is extremely important for A. minatrix in order to keep the animals successful. Likewise, the terrace should never dry out. The small animals have a calm mind, adult females are reminiscent of a young Avicularia avicularia. They spin tubes, at the entrance of which they lurk for prey.
