Nice decision, they are cool looking Tarantulas. Tomorrow you will be looking for your next species, lol.

The mini GBB strikes again, better than GBB as they don't have urticating setae.

Great choice for a first T, and welcome to the hobby. My first T was an Avicularia avicularia. He has since past after maturing. I've added 7 more since him. So far been lucky and got mostly females as slings except my Poecilotheria rufilata and Aphonopelma seemanni (blue phase) who ended up both being male. The P. rufilata is only a year old, but he is already 4 inches in DLS. My current collection includes A. geniculata sub adult female, MF A. chalcodes, MM A. seemanni, MF A. avicularia morphotype 6, sub adult female B. hamorii, MF C. lividus and a sub adult male P. rufilata. Hoping to add a few more to my collection later this year. Enjoy them, they are quite interesting creatures.

Exactly, that's YOU. I generally have long bouts of itchiness from a few of my NWs. A NW w/out such defense is great for ME.

Your patience is epic man! After all this time on the boards, you finally got a "roommate" CONGRATS!

Congratulations, very cool. I love this species...it is such a beautiful little dwarf species with all feeding response of the GBB, but at one order of magnitude faster.

Awesome. They're a gorgeous species. I love their coloration! I definitely think that you made a good choice for a beginner species. And believe me...this hobby is an addiction. I started out with a little L. klugi sling and have been building my collection ever since. You're going to really enjoy your new fascinating eight-legged friend. There is just such a huge array of species to choose from and so many fascinating things to learn. Welcome to the hobby :) .
