My metallica was spazoid. Went to a new home before 4.5”, the member that took him had way more experience. I did recently get a regalis, gonna give ow arboreal one more shot. Not my brightest call, I may become the poster child for idiot moves. 😅
Honest and not defensive- keep posting!

P. metallica peak in color at 4.5” then seem to lose much of the extreme blue as they get older. P. subfusca are the real top queens of Poecilotheria if you ask me. Then comes metallica, rufilata, ornata, regalis, vittata.. I dig the creamy coffee color vent band on regalis.. now someone has to print a regalis on a coffee cup.. ☕
I think I'd put them (subfusca) around #2 or 3. I think rufilata are the tops but that's just my preference. Metallica are hit and miss and depend on lighting. I agree with you on vitiate, which I think is under rated as is the regal
is (because they are the most common)

I like Rufilata the most, the greens very much appeal to me

Did we walk into DC's Bizarro universe, where everything is opposite, it SURE seems that way!!!

The OP proposed the opposite of the smartest idea I've ever read...I mean I can't take posters like this seriously.

That idea is only superseded by this one that came here once or so "can we make tarantulas vegetarian because I'm vegan"

What other "great" ideas are out there, like we need an Einstein to help us out to come up with something as clever.
My personal favorite was the guy who was dead set upon growing weed in his T enclosure. Among his many fabulously articulated arguments were, "It's not like it can get the spider high," and, "You guys anti-drug and that's why you think it's a bad idea,"

Oh god I remember that thread. At first I was convinced that the guy was a troll. It became apparent that he was serious, though. Gotta love people.
