i have some and i am trying to set up a biotope style vivarium for them.
would they be considered from blackwater southeast asia? or from fast moving creeks/rivers? :?
thanks for any help...

Not sure of their origin, but I lost one a month or two ago that escaped from my vivarium. Keep a tight lid on your tank! Since they spend most of their time out of the water or only partially submerged, I would highly doubt that they were from fast moving creeks/rivers.

that makes sense.
i will go with blackwater/slowmoving waters.
my lid is fairly tight, but it also has a weight, just to make sure!
thanks again,
kris

Mine change all the time, I have seen no factors that cause this, but they do darken before shedding and when hanging out in darker terrain. They may have normally done this in nature to elude predators, but pets seem to just change at random... like anoles.

I guess, if they feel secure, they may stay bright on dark terrain, but I think they might not have full control over it. (Don't worry, color changes are not an immediate sign of any one specific thing. EG, mood, camo, or sun bathing, or sickness.)
