Just gave Tang’s tank (our betta fish) a fresh trim. The carpeting aquarium plant in this tank is Monte Carlo.
Leucomelas are one species within the genus of Dendrobates where the male will carry tadpoles and deposit them into pools of water within the forest. They prefer the cups of Bromeliads, which many poison dart frog keepers provide within their vivariums.
Interestingly enough, Leucomelas tadpoles can be cannibalistic. If a tadpole is deposited into a bromeliad where a tadpole already exists, the larger tadpole will eat the smaller one.

One of my Blue Velvet Neocaridina shrimp likes to climb to the top of the rock in his planted tank. Blue Velvet Neocaridina are some of my favorite shrimp to keep. They’re fun and fairly hearty when it comes to freshwater nano shrimp.
