Do we have to pick a T from ur list of currents? :D cuz if not, I would go with A. versi or A. braunshes (cant spell it)...but if I have to choose from ur list, I would go with any aboreal T that u have

Nice display T, eh? You want an A. geniculata if you're looking for pretty, or L. parahybana if you want huge. They both almost never hide as adults, aren't too agressive, and are priced right.

Just out of curiousity, if you don't like agressive why do you have a P. murinus?

If you have a P.murinus and are looking for an arboreal, I would suggest a Poecilotheria regalis. They are beautiful, arboreal and IMO less trouble then OBTs (P.murinus.)

uh, i thought you wanted a big arboreal? try a. braunhauseni, they grow huge and are beautifully fluffy ;)

you could always go for a pokie as well - a regalis for example grows quite big, same with ornata. both are gorgeous ts, and will run and hide rather than bite. if you are very uncomfortable with fast and above avarage venomous species however, pokies are not for you.

in reply to spider fan its not that i don't like aggresive but the P. murinus is my first to see how well i can deal with them(it was a toss up between this and the h. lividum) and the price and color won.
