Default Plant Ideas

I am looking to get some really nice aroid species from Latin America for some hyla leucophyllata that I am getting from Peru.

Can you guys please give me some suggestions on some specific species that you would recommend that you know are available.

Antone, maybe you can help me out as I've seen some of your tanks and they are wonderful!

Default Some Aroid Ideas

For a tank your size, I would suggest that you be willing to anticipate the EVENTUAL mature size. With this in mind, consider the following (all neotropical):

Anthurium "Miss Mini Purple'
Anth. scandens (must trim occasionally)
Monstera seltipecana (must trim occasionally--not self-heading)Philodendron 'pincushion' or 'mini red'
Syngonium rayi
Any small cultivar of Spathiphyllum

Also, if your tank is on the wet side--and if you could not care less about
biotopical accuracy, try a small anubias.

Hope this helps.
1.1 D. leucomelas
1.1 Ptychozoon kuhlii
1.0 Tiliqua 'nova guinea'
1.0 Cuora trifasciata

I agree with the above. Anthurium clarinervium might do well as well.
