I just refinished replanting my 24x18x36 vivarium, containing 1.1 Polychrus marmoratus and 6 Phyllobates terribilis 'mint'. The Polychrus are a true canopy species, requiring high humidity, and remain at the top of the vivarium, while the P. terribilis mainly inhabit the lower levels. Both do a great job eating the crickets the other misses.

Full tank shot:

Man, that is really ugly Zack. You should probably just toss it out on the curb (but do call me first so that I can take a closer look after you do so). :)

Nice work.

Nice work.... Lovin the clump of broms. Pretty soon that terrib will be too fat and heavy to get all the way up there. lol

You'd be surprised - the terribs are already a year old and about 1.25" long. I was pretty shocked to find that they've continued to utilize 2/3 of the vertical space in this tank pretty consistently.

Those terribilis look spray painted with metallic green and yellow. I've never seen mints like that with a sort of blending from a yellowish green on the back to a real mint green on the legs. Very nice.

BTW - I love the bicolors. They are chowing down on the hydei I got from you in Daytona. I never thought much of them in most pictures, but as usual, they are stunning in person. Does Josh have any true green-legged adults in his breeding group? I'd love to have at least one with really green legs.

Nice job re-viving the enclosure. The broms add a lot.

Yah, it's a 2.1 group, and the female seems to have more greenish legs than the others. I think it's more apparent in adults, as opposed to froglets.

Ya that's what I was thinking, I've never seen such yellow terribilis.

Very nice tank as usual Zach. Great tank to show how mixing should be done.
