I recently finished my vivarium and I was wondering if you could please give some feedback as to which dart species are good for beginners. My vivarium is a 65 gallon that measures 36"x18"x24". It is heavily planted with all sorts of tropical plants and has a section of water that measures about an inch deep. I'm looking to keep a group of darts in this vivariums but I'm unsure which species can live in groups and how many I can keep in this enclosure. I hear that Leucomelas, auratus, terribilis or tricolors all do well in small groups but which of these will grow the largest in size and are the most inexpensive to buy? Please provide any feedback, I'm looking to make my purchase at the next expo in White Plains.

Terribilis are among the largest, and you can usually find them for around 40 dollars a piece. They can take larger food items, have a nice call, and get along with each other fine. They are also very bold.
Auratus are probably the cheapest darts out there, they are beautiful, but most are a little shy, definatly shy compared to the terribilis, and won't take as large of food items.
I have no experience with leucomelas or tricolors.

I had thought Arklier posted earlier that Leucs would be a good choice to utilize the entire space (horizontal as well as vertical).

I am in agreement with her on this.

Tricolors might be cool also.
