    Okay, which one and why? Aphonopelma chalcodes Or
    Acanthoscurria geniculata?
    I prefer the colours of the A. chalcodes but favour the size of the A. geniculata !

    Help!!

    A. geniculata every time. Great appetite, beautiful coloration, always out and about, good growth rate and maximum size. I will never not recommend this species.

    I don’t own either of them but my bud does... he loves them both but he prefers the genus Aphonopelma

    My conundrum is
    Do I buy
    A pair 1.1 C.Versi 3cm 40€
    Or a pair of 1.1 3cm H. Pulchripes
    I have a H. Pulchripes unsexed in the way
    And never owned but always wanted C.Versi... just afraid to, my bud frighteningly can’t get them passed the 2” 5cm mark. He’s tried with 10, currently has 2 that are approaching 5cm, looks promising.

    Because the price is too good to pass up.
    And guaranteed a female and male. For both species
     
  16. Sod it get all of them then haha.. very optimistic to say guaranteed a female with only 2?? I would want at least 10 to be sure lol

    They’re sold as male and female pair...
    both would be too much. Can only get one pair until next spring.

    Excepting the fact that an A. genic will be about 5” DLS while your A. chalcodes is still comfortable in its spacious eight ounce deli cup.
