Grammostola rosea (Awsome "pet")
Grammostola pulchra (Also an awsome "pet")
Brachypelma smithi (Good colors)
Brachypelma vagans (The adult males are beautiful)
Brachypelma albopilosum (You would have to try to kill this one)
Brazilopelma colloravillosum (Good contrast, good for display)
Avicularia avicularia (Hardy for an arboreal)
Avicularia versicolor (Beautiful colors)
Theraposa blondi (Oh come on, 12 inches!!!)

As you can tell, I like hardier T's.

My list of 10... two I currently own and one I've owned before. All the others are on my wishlist.

A.geniculata
A.minatrix
A.versicolor
B.albiceps
B.smithi - the classic T :)
C.elegans - at least one mini sp. ;)
Cyriopagopus sp. "blue"
G.aureostriata
M.robustum
P.rufilata - only because it's large and the best color in the world (green), otherwise I probably wouldn't get a pokie

Not the best list, I'm still new to the hobby. :eek:

T blondi
Selenocosmia crassipes

10 is hard, and the answer might be another one tomorrow, but here we go:

p. metallica
p. subfusca
g. pulchra
b. annitha
c. spec. 'blue'
h. maculata
a. versicolor
a. huriana
b. rudloffi
p. ultramarinus

of those, i still lack the huriana und the ultramarinus... but on the other hand, yesterday's count revealed 60 spiders, 58 of them tarantulas (including the slings), so i think i can wait a bit longer for them :eek:

I only have fourteen spiders now lol. I keep a selective bunch. lol. As it stands at the moment, this is what I would have.

P. ornata
P. regalis
P. subfusca - The black one - is that highland or lowland?
P. pederseni


P. irmina
P. pulcher

G. aureostriata

B. auratum

E. vulpinus

X. immanis

Then it would be a throw up between P. miranda , P. metallica.
I would probably have to sneak more in by having communal set ups :p

B. emilia
E. campestratus
P. miranda
P. pulcher
A. versicolor
A. huriana
B. albiceps

I would have put P. metallica in there, but I love my P. miranda girl. Sigh, I've left so many out!
