Depends on what direction you want to go now. Do you want to go into arboreals? Bigger? Faster? More aggressive? What are you interested in, let us know, then we can start shooting suggestions at you.

l. parahybana, p. metallica ( :D ) , a. geniculata. or do you think you are ready for an old world?

L. parahybana. It has an impressive size and is easier to take care of than a T. blondi. They're also relatively cheap in price.

A. geniculta or N. colloratovillosus. Both are big and beautiful and full of attitude!

Im in the same boat, I have a G. Rosea and B. Smithi and am looking into a 3rd T. My short list is a A. Geniculata or G. Aureostriata.
Infact the way this hobby goes I'll probably get both, then a T. Blondi and a H. Lividum!!! ;)

You can't go wrong with either an a. geniculata or a g. aureostriata. Anything from the genus aphonopelma would probably be good too.

A. genic

I second the geniculata, its a handsome T and is out in the open often.

What about a Green bottle blue ( Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens ) it's a great T, easy to keep, and VERY interesting.

I'm a little bias I have one

C. cyaneopubescens is actually a really good choice. Doesn't burrow from what I've heard, decently active, low maintainence, very beautiful coloring, an excellent choice for your next T.

i agree witht he A. genic. mine eats a ton, isn;t very aggresive, and is ALWAYS in the open. real nice colors, but a terrible hair kicker. i payed $45 i belive for a 2" one, and it was well worth it.

I'd definitely go for the A.Geniculata. considering how fast it grows unlike the G.Aureostriata which would take like decades to grow.:wall:

Well, then consider an A. geniculata, a G. aureostriata, possibly a C. cyanopubescens, although they are technically semi arboreal. L. parahybana, or L. difficilis could work as well.
