So there's some obvious T's out there that everyone is gonna want to name off. GBB's of course, b. smithi (and other brakys), cyriopagus sp blue, p.metallica, h. lividum, and so on. What are some other visually striking T's you would recommend in the intermediate price range?

Probably some holothele and cyriocosmus if your into smaller sp., H. schmidti for damn sure, uh C. scheodtei, pretty much any Pamphobeteus, S. arndsti is a good one I think, and C. fimbriatus, S. calceatum is a very beautiful and underrated T, P. pulcher, any Tapenauchenius, I'm sure there's lots I'm forgetting.

they're not cheap, but Xenesthis sp. are visually striking and in the INTERMEDIA price range

Can't really go wrong with ornata and rufilata either.

P. irminia - I know black, orange and green but still very striking.

O P. murinus RCF - if you looking for something with a bit of bite - literally

Except, M. balfouri would be on the extremely expensive list, moreso than any pokie. They aren't even in the US except in a handful of collections

B. angustum. As black as any G. pulchra with bright red setae on their abdomen. Not exactly "colorful", but definitely visually striking.

The Velveteen Rabbit of Ts, C. crawshayi, is visually as well as aurally striking.:D

Pretty much go with most Avics, especially Versi as their colors change.
Pokies pretty cool to. All depends on what colors do it for you.

Many Phormictopus sp and T.alpophosis can have a stiking purple sheen. Imagine an 8" POed purple spider! ~ Rex

Slighty off topic but I found it interesting to see that Tarcan(Tarantulas Canada) just posted on his price list that he has CB Monocentropus balfouri slings for $450.00 canadian. At one point even P. tigrinawesselli and P. metallica commanded higher prices...... Although this is still well above any intermediate pricing.

Cyclosternum fasciatum - the Costa Rican Tiger Rump - is very pretty.

Not sure if anyone posted this one yet, but C. fasciatum are beautiful tarantulas that can be purchased at minimal amounts. Also have you ever really looked at the colors in some of the G. rosea? I mean ive seen some rosea that are just shocking beautiful. Another good one is G. aureostriata, they can be quite striking.

N. chromatus are a striking T.s and fairly cheap and easy to find.
