Out of those listed, moderatum is my personal fave but why not get all 3? None are particularly expensive.

Oi, I'd say drop the anax, look at sp 'New River' or 'Flagstaff orange' A. moderatum is nice though.

I have to agree the new river is very pretty, I just got a A.hentzi and She is beautiful! I personally dont think you could go wrong with any of them:)

I haven't had the other two, but A. hentzi is simply gorgeous. Ours is extremely docile and you can't beat the golden sheen of its carapace.
