I'd like to pick up a new species of T which does some heavy webbing for a show terrarium. Any recommendations?

I'd also throw the Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens in there as well.

How about P. murinus. They web alot and are an awsome orange color to show off. Anther one that webs a lot would be GBB. They are pretty too. How about an H. incei. They are a dwarf species but they web a lot.

P. murinus
C. cyaneopubescens
H. incei

Well this is good to know :) P. Murinus & H. Lividum are pretty much sitting at the next couple purchases on my wanted list, so I guess things are going to work out for me already! {D

Some arent I've seen some just sit around and web the enclosure like it was a P. murinus!! Maybe because it couldnt burrow but I've seen pictures and videos..

I've heard this time and time again, but I still think they're pretty rockin looking spiders and I want one regardless. i've seen people say their H. Lividum will come out readily to hunt when feeders are introduced, hopefully mine isn't too shy when I get one!

no worries mate, its a good rule of thumb that they disappear and you usually never see them:wall: until its a substrate change or a rehousing

Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens should provide all the webbing you ever need.

Damn pretty T's too! After going back to take a look for some C. cyaneopubescens web pics I think this should definately be my show webber!

You forgot the Ceratogyrus. This is the brachycephalus. I don't have a marshalli, but the bechuanicus does the same.

My GBB has his spinnerets working constantly. Always adding new web, and webbing sphagnum moss to his hide (never gets used), and decor. Very intricate webbing too, various passages and holes so he always has quick access to anywhere he want's to go, or anywhere a cricket may try to hide. Add to the massive webbing that they are just so colorful and aggressive feeders....you really can't go wrong with a GBB.
