If it was my tank, I might consider some maybe 2" diameter branches coming from the back toward the front, occupying the negative space. You can then put some broms or other epiphytes on them and give the frogs more places to explore.

One trick I’ve learned is that using smaller leaved plants in the rear and larger leaved plants in the front creates an appearance of depth.
Plants that look like small trees can definately fool the eye into treating those as far off in the distance.

Yes! Avoid the "stadium" look.

My first vivarium was a 75 gallon aquarium, and I did the typical short-medium-tall look. One day I was moving it and noticed how much I loved the view from the side glass- because there was depth. I now design all my vivs to have plenty of areas not visually accessible from the intended view point.
