Wow!! Great choices!!

Are you picking them as adults or slings/juveniles?

Be careful with H. maculata, I don't have one (yet) but everyone say that they are super fast!

Please, post some pics as soon as you get them :drool:

Congrats!

Yes, don't look funny at your H. maculata, they generally have a bad temper.

Still, in my opinion, the most beautiful tarantula around.

Good luck with both. :)

Weird. I just got those two species a couple weeks ago, they're my only Ts right now. IME with them so far, the H.mac becomes a pet rock in the day but at night it goes wild and webs up a storm (I'll literally stand by his cage with a redlight and just watch him go at it for hours; very entertaining for me). :p The A.genic might hide for the first couple weeks, cause I still haven't seen mine out yet. They eat like pigs though, so you won't be disappointed. :D
