Monitor Considerations

I'm looking to possibly take advantage of Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals but not sure exactly what I need.

Forgeting brands. I understand Ezio and NEC are top dogs. BenQ photography series and Asus Photo Art are affordable options. What has me at a cross road is deciding if I need color accurate or just web ready.

I have two goals. Use my calibrated display to best ensure my photo taken is a proper example of what I photographed. I breed boa constrictors and my market is 100% web but I’m also using my display to visually determine the absolute best of the best to determine future breeders and pricing which is graded based on certain characteristics yet color is often the one most used.

My subjects are albino with varying intensity of reds. Not sure if Adobe RGB will show greater levels of shade in the reds as it has grater colors in blues and greens which I’m not at the moment concerned with.

I shoot Canon 5DM4 with various L lens in raw. I’m leaning towards getting an Adobe RGB color corrected monitor but will it actually help me in my second goal? I know it will do nothing for web so long as I get a 100% or very close to 100% sRGB display.
