    They have been doing very well together for the last two days. The male of the Iquitos pair is calling and they hang around a film canister. The azureus (a pair and a juvie) go about their own business. I feed them melanogasters and hydei and there are many springtails in there.

    I just heard that there is a possibility my female azureus can antagonize the female thumbnail and drown her. I will keep an eye out for any behaviour even close to this and build a new viv if necessary. Right now they completely ignore each other. I would never keep two dart species together that can hybridize - that would be totally unethical in my books.

    Here are pics of the whole vivarium. Some people on dendroboard didn't believe it was a 65 g and thought it was a 20 so I taped a quarter on the glass.
