    So i was just wonderin based on visibility and just the overall look of the T, which do yalls like better? I'll be picking one out of the two because I've found someone selling for a good price!

    Thank you in advance!

    There has been a revision in that genus but I haven't looked at it in detail, which is why I asked :p
    Which one is more suitable for you depends on your experience and what other spiders you keep. T.violaceus is gorgeous, stays kind of small but Tapinauchenius is one of, if not the most fast species of Theraphosidae, outrunning Pokies and H.maculata. They're New World but lack urticating hairs; which is a plus. They make burrows using webcurtains decorated with substrate but can be out and about regularly if housed correctly. The more clutter the better visible they become.
    Haven't kept A.purpurea but I think is gorgeous as an adult as well, gets a bit bigger than T.violaceus and is pretty much just like other Avicularia species afaik. :)
