A friend has reported that both of his pair of leucomelas have been found sitting underwater--snout and all, on several occasions. Has anyone heard of this? Mine will hunt in shallow water or sit in bromeliad cups of water, but I've never heard of any darts deliberately submerging entirely.

Are they completely submerged? My vents will go under rocks in a waterway, but their heads are sticking out. This guy claims the leucs were in deep water, completely submerged.

Thanks for the welcome.

D. leucomelas under water

Yes, sometimes my galacs will fall in the aquarium portion of the paludarium and swim to shore rapidly, but they don't hang out under water on purpose. What this guy is reporting seems to be a different kind of behavior that makes no sense to me, because it is more like a dwarf African aquatic frog, but not as persistent. I have no reason to suspect he is making this up, because he just isn't the type to invent things. I just promised to check it out with everyone here to see if there were any other experiences or someone would know a reason why it would occur.
