    Hey there,
    I've got an Aphonopelma seemani, and an A. avicularia. The A. avic just molted a few days ago, so I'm eager to get a good look at it once it comes out of its little tent.

    The addiction begins.....

    You do know that you gotta do pics and videos right?

    Well, at least highly suggested.

    Next species? You have one terrestrial and one arboreal.

    Next terrestrial:

    Any Lasiodora species or any Acanoscurria species. The more radical option is perhaps one of the Pamphobeteus species such as machala or one of the other more common ones.

    Next arboreal simply has to be C versicolor. :)

    It should be noted that many consider Psalmopeous species like pulcher or cambridgi to be much more hardy as slings. Versicolor slings are thought to be more delicate as well.


    All in my humble opinion of course.
