one that cost $1 at Lowies its a moth orchid, a Phalaenopsis hybrid........i bought it with a bunch of others for $1 each cause they were done blooming.......lil bit TLC and its blooming again.......was worried it would be to wet where its at but it seems to be doing fine and the flower spike is going nuts producing new buds.......jury is still out if it will do good long term but if it doesnt it will be replaced with a wet growing species

Nice orchid!!!!! Make sure no water accumulates on the crown. The little frogs are too cool!! They are tiny! How often do you see them?

when ever i look in the tank with the exception of early morning........they are constantly out and make use of every bit of the tank except the ground under the branches.......they are occationally on the rocks by the side of the pond but are mainly on the glass and crawling over the wood and plants.

Hey, I have seen different kinds of Imi's that are all called D Imitators, your color varation is the kind that I like the most, do you know who you got these from or what there other name is?

Thanks, Curtis

Curtis - you are undoubtedly referring to "D. imitator" which is just an abbreviation for "Dendrobates imitator" which is the species of frog pictured. There are multiple morphs of D. imitator in the hobby - yurimaguensis, tarapoto (both rare) and intermedius, as well as D. imitator imitator. Anytime you see someone advertising "D. imitator" or "standard imitator" or "imitator," it is the SAME frog. There are minor variations from individual to individual, but they are not distinct species or morphs.
