I wouldn't be so sure. I agree with Philsuma that this tank lends itself well to larger, heavy-bodied frogs. You have a lot of floor space in there which would be helpful for larger frogs. I am not seeing a ton of climbing opportunities in the negative space, either, but maybe I am missing it. There do seem to be plenty of hiding opportunities.

The difference between Tincs and Terribs (not Auratus, in my experience, they hide) and Ranitomeya (again, in my experience) is that I rarely have trouble finding my larger frogs in the tank whereas some of my Ranitomeya hide enough that I rarely see them all at once. So, you might want to ask yourself if you would rather see all 4-6 of your Terribs/both of your Tinc pair or would you rather see 1 or 2 of your 8 Ranitomeya? That might be one way to look at things, anyway.
