Default How many can I add?

I have a 24"x24"x24" tank. I am trying to find out how many of one of these species I could put in the tank.

A. D. tinctorius “Citronella”
B. D. tinctorius “Surinam Cobalt”
C. P. terribilis Mint
D. D. leucomelas

Of these which would be best for this tank

Thanks Chris

Hey Chris, good question to ask. Here is a thread I started to help people with this question. It's long but helpful I think.

http://www.dendroboard.com/forum/beg...iscussion.html

There is no perfect aswer for these questions. But a fast answer....For A and B I would say 2, maybe two males and a female at the most (agression). C and D you could do a small group 3-5. Although 5 might be alot for terribilis, I don't know much about them. Leucs would be my choice. They will use the whole space and would do well in a small group.

Still, check out the thread.

Thanks so much. I was leaning towards Leucs. Will they climb glass much?

I would lean towards the terribilis first and then the leucs second, depending upon you preference of color. Both have great calls. My terribilis will be found up on the branches and large leafed plants, but the leucs tend to be there even more. I don't see my leucs on the glass much though. I think that if you went with terribilis, I would not go more than 3 in that sized tank.

I don't know Chris. My friends have some and I don't recall seeing them on the glass much.

I have luecs, and while I have never seen them climb the glass in person, I keep finding poop on it near the top of the tank. So obviously they climb it when I'm not looking.

Nice vivarium! They should climb a fair amount to a lot all over the tank.

If you're planning on leaving the viv open like that, and high temps would never be an issue, I'd go with terribs. If you don't mind adding some larger leafed plants and the like, leucs would be all over the place.

Thanks Chris

A. and B. are the same size-ish, about 2.5 cubic inches. So, with a tanks bare bones capacity of 13824 cubic inches you can fit 5529 tincs of that size.
C. (terribilis) tend to be bigger at about 3.5 cubic inches , full grown, so that would be about 3949 adult terribilis that would fit in there.
And, D. being close in size to the tincs you mention, I'll say about 2 cubic inches, would be the largest quantity able to fit with 6912.
