ok, here's what i have

Cyclosternum Sp? (Cobalt Redrump)
A. versicolor
A. avicularia
P. cambridgei
P. ornata
P. scrofa
B. angustrum
C. thorelli
H. minax
E. campestratus
2x H. gigas
A. geniculata
Pterinochilus sp
B. albopilosum

So, i really have no idea what to start looking for. I've never had this problem!!!!!!
I'm probably going to get a couple more Pokie slings.
maybe an A. braunshauseni?
maybe an A. metallica?
I think i might also want a couple spiders from the genus Cyclosternum.. maybe a C. fasciatum?

this is awful.... my brain is all scattered now!!!!
I don't have a C cyaneopubesnens either!

O.k. so my wish list is growing quick! but how am i going to narrow it down to something i can afford!!!!!!!!!

HHHHHHHHHEEEEEELLLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!!!

You could even get a big T like a goliath or kingbaboon... Robustums are cool to or a rio grand gold.. Just a sugestion thats all....:D ;P ;P

Ooh yeah, I have to agree on that one too. I love Brachypelmas, my B. Smithi is so beautiful I can just sit and stare at her for hours. And I've been seeing my baby B. Vagans emerging from their little dens.. OH man are they cute. I was just looking at one, she will be so beautiful when she gets bigger.
I have the same problem tho, I want to get another spider, sorta to take the place of the one who died (not that I can replace her, but I hate looking at an empty terrarium). I might even look at some of those suggestions from blackwidow.. I was looking at A. Metallica, B. Boehmi, or B. Emilia, or even G. Pulchra since they are my favorite color :)

Well Blackwidow69,

You've sold me... I'm adding G. Pulchra to my list. Now if Swifty's got them in, I've got it made.

P regalis and the A. metallica get my vote for what ever that is worth.

Blue Skies, John

Although I purchased an A. versicolor for my daughter, the arboreals scare me a bit. I have a vaulted ceiling and I haven't a clue how I'd catch one if it got away from me. I've heard so much about the speed of the pokes, so I'm a bit leary about them. They are beautiful though.

Versicolor

Hi all.

I have 2 versicolor and they were a little skittish in the beginning , but now after 2 molts each they are much calmer and doesn't react so "nervous" anymore.

Well,, I would like to add Green Bottle Blue to the list above, easy to keep, just keep the substrate bone-dry and mist a little extra for spiderling on cage walls and it's a g o :D and very nice looking with it's colors, I have one:)

I have also an 8 inch Chaco Golden Knee and she's sooo docile.

I really love my Ceratogyrus brachycephalus (Marawuti and Caliban), they're beautiful, feisty, and voracious eaters. They construct pretty incredible webs as well. My Theraphosa blondi (Caravaggio) is great, as is my Lasiodora parahybana (Grendel). I love all of my spiders, but the baboons and birdeaters will almost always win my vote.

it IS a dilemma...but you simply MUST have a C cyaneopubescens (green bottle blue).
Also, the C fasciatum is a great choice...mine is loose somewhere in my house, as is my P regalis :(
You can't go wrong with G pulchra either.
And you must have an L parahybana to rival your A geniculata on size and pigginess!
I have 2 C crayshawi...and they are a good choice only if you don't mind rarely if ever seeing them.
and any pokie...is a good pokie :D

I know you already have them, but if I were you I would just add a bunch of Pterinochilus. I have three adults and one juvie now, with another two adults and a juvie arriving next week. By far my favourite spiders at this point.

Cheers,
Dave
