I'd say a Brachypelma boehmei all our Brachypelma's are great. (b. smithi, b. emilia)

It all depends on how much you want to see your spider. A B. boehmi will remain in the open alot, a H. lividum will remain in its burrow most of the time. I have both these species and both are amazing spiders but if buying one it will come down to "do you want to see it alot" and temperament, the Brachypelma is not too aggressive while the Haplopelma...well. Good luck in whichever you choose.

The best answer is to get both--you'll probably end up with both one day anyways! =D

From your sig, I see that you have only a G. rosea, and an A. Avicularia right now. I would say get the Brachypelma, with your experience. It will give you the 'hair flicker' experience before moving onto the 'mean nasty bitey' experience. Also, like others said, you'll never get to see an H. lividum.

Still, I noticed you list one of the 'wife' species.. that may prepare you for the aggressiveness of Haplopelma more than any other T will ;)
