Darts can swim, but they generally don't choose to. Some have reported that theirs will jump in the water when startled and dive to the bottom, but I have never seen mine do that.
They will drown if they don't have a way to get out of the water, so there are several exit areas from the water area. They can sit on the plants in the water too.
Mostly they hide up top.

I finally got around to taking some pictures, looking at the terrestrial side, anyway. Like I said, the underwater portion is so overgrown it is silly. Trying to get pictures of the frogs in it would take more patience than I have, since they are still juvies and pretty shy.
Let me know what you think.

It is pretty cool how mostly low maintence this thing is, although it would be better if I did a little more... Water parameters never change. I've gone up to 3 months between water changes. I just need to remember to feed the fauna.
The aquatic portion is now very over grown. Very. Between the crypts, the vals, and everything, it is an underwater jungle. You really can't see thru to the background. 2 weeks ago I pulled out 30 vals, a big crypt, and some java moss... and it was hard to tell afterward.
The terrestrial portion is doing well. The orchid went through a little adaptation period, and has now grown a lot, but hasn't flowered again. The broms have all pupped many... pups. Ferns hang down in front, and african violets take up the rest of the floor space.
I also moved in some auratus and red galacs (frogs.) They are still young, and I almost never see them sitting out, though. I just find their poop everywhere. Fertilizer.

Today, while doing a water change and rearranging the plumbing, I found the 4th in the bottom of the canister filter! I know I'm not the first that this has happened to, but I was glad to get the little guy back.
