Spider Identification

lima, Peru

Hello guys, ive found this spiders in my house, i know that theyre poisonous but i kept them captive for almost 2 weeks but one of them died even though it had enough air to breathe and the other got drowned, i was preparing an small tank for them but im not sure if it was the most appropiate enviroment for them(i was feeding them with cockroachs and flies)(with small and big rocks).
So anyone here can help me identify their specific breed or kind, how to be able to keep them as ''pets''( i know is really dangerous) and any other tips.

PD: English is not my mother language so if i have a grammatical error let me know.

Thanks a lot guys, im a new member in your forum.
Sincerely, SW

These look like crevice weavers in the family Filistatidae - see https://static.inaturalist.org/photos/626401/medium.JPG?1388978853 for an example. These are not dangerously venomous to humans. See http://arachnoboards.com/threads/caring-for-kukulcania-hibernalis.227272/ for a discussion on caring for these spiders in captivity.

An orb weaver (family Araneidae); looks like a Larinioides sp. - http://www.pbase.com/tmurray74/image/102493591
All orb weavers are harmless to humans.
