They do spend most of their time on the ground or lower regions of a tank, but if given some height they will use it (like leucs). I have mine in a 30 tall and they climb to the top of that a fair amount. Mine have always been rather bold and active during the day. They will take larger food items, which is a bonus, and have a great call... probably my favorite call out the darts I have heard in person. If you have the chance to get some I would do so.

I actually got my group from Jon a few years ago. Mine are very active and are out all day long. I have a 2:3 group and the males call all year round, in fact they call for about hour every day after misting. They are about 1 1 as adults. They spend time in all sections of the 18 high enclosure I keep them in. I have vittatus, terribillis and lugubris and they are the biggest climbers of the genus that I have seen. I highly recommend them!

I have 2 pair of green Aurotaenia, they like bing in groups.
they have a great call, mine call most of the morning, I have recordings of the males calling back and forth for one girls attention. they are very active, not to shy, and will use all the tank, yes even upper.
if you wanna post your email i can send a video or audio of them.
they are my fav. of my collection.
