I think most people will say Tiger Salamanders but I like Aneides lugubrius, T. marmoratus and Salamandra. Wild caught tigers will always be the cheapest and easiest to find.

I will also suggest Salamandra. They are loads of fun to keep and have their own personalities. Mine are very aggressive and are lots of fun to feed. If you can find anyone selling them in your state i think you should definitely consider getting a few.
They may be a bit more pricey, likely nothing too bad though.
