Post Still Newish

Started keeping darts in Jan, have 2 Leucs, 2 Tincs (powder blue), 3 Mantella Baroni, and 1 Ranitomeya Imitator Banded (only male I have). I have 4 tanks set up, 1- 12x12x18, 1- 18x18x18, 1- 36x18x12, and 1- Large terrarium jar that is temporary until I can replace the 36x18x12 with 2- 18cubes. I've been learning quite a bit about them, and am thoroughly enjoying these awesome creatures.

You reached addiction level pretty quickly huh? LOL I don't even have frogs in mine yet. It's only been set up for like a week as of the 23rd. But i'm already planning my next one. I guess I did everything right. I'm already seeing some growth in at least two of my plants and they are still very very green. I'm assuming that i'd be seeing some browning if something was going to go wrong.

Definitely did. I think they are amazing, for the most part my plants have done well, with 2 real exceptions, I have 2 jewel orchids that are struggling and a begonia that about half has died off. My one large tank that I plan on dismantling seems to be doing exceptionally well as the plants in it seem to be thriving, except for the height limits them greatly. I just absolutely hate how short it is, it makes it difficult to see the mantellas in it especially since they hide 70% of the time already.

Looks nice! The mantellas are beautiful!

I didn't find the jewel orchids in your pics, but if they are Macodes, they can be fussy about water -- keep them well ventilated, and keep water off the leaves, but keep the roots moist. Ludisia should be pretty straightforward to keep.

It's in the third picture, on the wall in the middle. Very very pale, I need better lights, the ones I have are too white so the plants turn very pale.

Now I see it. Jewel orchids are terrestrial, and prefer quite low light, so planting it in a shaded spot in the substrate would help a lot.

Thanks, I'll try that. The shelf that it is in is filled with soil, but moving it down probably will help it a lot. I had moved one lower on the bottom into the soil and it seems to be doing better, but it's still touch and go with it and it's still fairly pale. I plan on getting some better lights soon, that should help.
