Hey I'm strongly considering getting a group of imitators. can someone refer me to a link or give me some ideas on how to set up the tank for them. Would it be the same setup that I would use for Azureus or Auratus? I've kep both of these spp. in the past. thanks! :?:

It would be similiar, but they like more vertical space, so the taller the better.

thanks! I've got like a 29 gal tall, that I need to buy a hood for. But that should work for those little guys.

What kind of flora do they like in the tank?

I see you are in Chicago.
Pete Mertens is in your area, he sells plants and supplies as well as dart frogs. He could give you some pointers on your tank.
The easiest way to get in touch with Pete is by phone, as he has limited internet access.
You can contact him at 630-479-3764
