Anyone keep these? Seem like a really neat species and I got to see a mixed tank with them at the St. Louis zoo.

I am going to be making a aquarium type tank for my aquatic insects this spring. If I can get my hands on them I will add them to my tank.

Sunbursts have a limited range but it's fairly easy to collect other species such as Dytiscus and Cybister by setting up a light trap near a pond.
