    my favorite is the A. sp. Peru Purple. the purple is deeper than the A. purpurea, which is why i like it better.

    My avatar pic is my juvie sp. Peru Purple after he passed from a molt issue :( he'd just started showing the blues and purples instead of the yellow sling legs. maybe 1-1.5" dls at that time.

    Here's some pics stolen from google ;) Not seeing a difference in the male/female for these in the google pics, but you know how accurate they are...
