Well I have nothing much to add but when I first started one of my first tanks had a drip wall type feature with a small pond that was maybe 2x3 inches and not even an inch deep. It was in a 20g long and it worked out great and my female auratus used it all the time. The other frogs in the tank never bothered with it. I scrapped the tank in time because of complications with the pump and the way I set it up. I haven't since made a real water feature for darts but hold no negative feelings toward them. If you are going to do it, do it right.

On another note a friend of mine who is a desert lizard breeder tried his hand at darts and made a 55 gallon with a water feature that was probably 10 inches wide by 10 inches long and about 3 inches deep. I told him that was too much and he was taking away from their space but he like it. 3 of his 4 frogs died in that water feature and he finally admitted it was a bad idea and gave away the last frog.

Like previously mentioned small or size appropriate water features can work but you for sure need to do your homework and probably better to go smaller than larger. Not saying a water feature can't be done but they are for sure better left to the pond/stream species of frogs.
