Depends on what you are looking for, one you can hold or one you can't. The P. Irminia is an awesome looking arboreal, but it is fast and very aggressive. If you want an arboreal that you will be able to handle, I would suggest an Avicularia. They are docile and many are also great display arboreals. Take a look at some pics of the Avic's and decide for yourself. The ornamentals are also great display T's, but they too are fast and aggressive.

Good Luck finding your arboreal :)

A. avicularia - (pinktoe) are great. Or variants thereof, such as A. metallica (whitetoe)... If you want something even flashier, there's A. versicolor. All three are great spiders.

You can't go wrong with an Avicularia. Definitely start off with one of practically any species and sooner or later (probably sooner) you can move on to a more aggressive/defensive arboreal.

I'd recommend A. versicolor. There are no more beautiful spiders out there, they have a temperament suitable for even a beginning keeper, and mine spend more time out of their retreats than most other arboreals.

Definitely the A. versicolor. That was my first arboreal and watching it go through it's color changes was what got me really interested in obtaining more T's!

I have both an A. avicularia and an A. aurentiaca sling. But pretty soon I'll have an A. versicolor and an A. metallica (I just love that name.). No Togo Sunbursts!
