I figure a couple small setups until I get back into the swing of things, haven’t had darts for like 15 years.
Heh we are in the exact same place except you have the advantage of actually having kept frogs before. I got permission from The Wife almost 2 years ago to have a 120 gallon rimless high tech planted tank in the main area of our house when we bought one. I am rethinking it now after keeping a 40 gallon high tech in my basement for the past year. It's a lot of work to keep it looking nice and easy to let it look terrible. I can make a low tech nano tank look great and it keep it that way effortlessly, my 40 gallon has been an ongoing trial. It doesn't help that that tank is all native species and frankly doesn't have a good algae eater among them. Anyway, with how easy vivariums are I am really thinking a 120 gallon with a drip wall and a species that is group friendly like auratus might be the way to go. But... if the bugs gross the wife out too much there is no way we can put it within sight of our dining room table...
Believe it or not mine was ok with one in the kitchen, but someone on my other thread mentioned with small kids salmonella in the kitchen is unwise so I’m thinking a low tech with shrimp in that spot. But yea in our loving rooms having a giant box of water brings it own headaches and has made me realize vivarium not only looks cooler, but is less of a accident waiting to happen as well. I already know the group I want in that main display. Terribilis. Big, bold and loud calls
