    The Leucomelas do like to climb the terrarium and sit on plants alot.
    This is one of their favorite bromeliads:

    Here is one of my Green and Black Costa Rican dart frogs.
    I don't have many photos of them since they hide most of the time!

    [QUOTE=Heli;1074329]Well according to Peter D Amato he often finds frogs hiding in the pitchers of his helis unharmed. The theory is that there is a symbiotic relationship between the two, the frog will hide under the nectar spoon and catch the insects, and in turn poop into the pitcher, giving the plant nutrients.[COLOR="green"]

    Awesome - Thanks for the info. Would love to see photos of that.
    I will now have to figure out which Heli to volunteer for the job!!

    Not bad for 22W of power.
    One of the best part is that they give off almost no heat! Last summer me and the frogs almost melted from all of the heat from the T8s that I was using, my AC couldn't keep up!

    I should have a pretty large closet cleared out in a few months, which I'll ideally set up a terrarium for lowland(?) Nepenthes in. I was thinking about adding some darts, but I have this strange feeling that a 10" pitcher with a 4" mouth would be pretty enticing for a dart frog and would end up with a $50 meal... Do they like swim around in the fluid and climb out? lol...?
