So I see someone made one of these back in 2017 but it’s the same idea with a little bit more added. If you were forced to keep only one genus which one would ya choose and why?

Personally, I don’t have a lot of experience so my choices are limited, but I would pick Avicularia genus. Love arboreals and I like the webbing they make high up.

Phormictopus. My sp. purple has the best feeding response out of all my spiders, T. stirmy included.

Brachypelma. There is a lot of variety, they get big enough to see the colors and patterns easily, and they're very easy to care for.

Poecilotheria easily. Big, colorful, fast growing, etc.
I would of chosen pokies if I actually had raised any. Definitely on my list whenever I am ready for them. They are really beautifully, especially the metallica.

What @nicodimus22 said. Plus (and a HUGE plus), always out, unlike those "big, colorful, fast-growing, etc." pokies. Call me crazy, but I actually like to see a spider when I look into the enclosure, but that's just me.

Honorable mention: Pamphobeteus, Phormictopus.

Brachypelma - There's loads of them, they're cool, they almost never hide, nuff said.


Honourable mentions: Psalmopoeus, Nhandu

I’d flip a coin between Poecs and Psalmos. The Poecs look a little cooler, but not when they’re hiding.

Harpactira (not my top favorite, as Homoeomma and Euathlus take that spot), it is a genus filled with very underrated species.

I have to say Homoeomma, because I don't want to live without my little dirt architect. :p
I feel the same way about my weirdo Bumba cabocla. :) Plus the genus name is just the best, so Bumba it is!

What I wouldn’t give for a Bumba horrida, the slightly different looking version of the cabocla :p (For real though..:greedy:)

Either Brachypelma or Poecilotheria all the way
Both have amazing colors and Brachys are always out
Pokies are fast growing and big and beautiful
