I was just curious what would be your choice for true spiders between Hogna carolinensis or carolina wolf spider or either species of dolomedes tenebrosus / okefinokensis I do keep both .

Very different behaviors but was just curious what your favorite is?

Dolomedes will probably be much more visible and better for display. Can't speak for Hogna but dolomedes have an awesome feeding response. I used to keep one in a critter keeper with a small water bowl. Any time something touched the water, even if the spider was on the opposite end of the enclosure, it would instantly make a single leap and land in the water bowl. She also caught moths in midair.
