arthros are really easy to tame if you have a pulmonoscorpius, it grants you the stealth needed to do the passive tame (i think that araneos do that too but they're harder to catch and their saddle unlocks way later). you can just search the highest level arthro in the cave and stock up on rotten meat while doing so, just keep in mind that the saddle unlocks at level 54 and there's not much of a point in keeping one before having a saddle
Easiest and safest way to tame this is to lure it under water. They stop aggro and you can tame as you please. Just make sure you come up for air every once in a while. Also be sure the water is deep enough.
All you have to do is tame a scorpion and ride up to an arthro on the scorpion and feed it spoiled meat. The arthro will not aggro on you while you are riding the scorpion. I did this on my mobile world so I can confirm that this works at least on mobile.
