I just finished a dual 15 gallon tank build for ranitomeyas. I put in some mosses, sonerila sp., selaginella, and baby tears at the bottom. Some bromeliads and orchids planted above, but I still feel like there is some things missing. I know the plants need time to grow in to feel natural but I feel like I'm missing some elements. All opinions welcome on what I sbould add.

They will be housing ranitomeya veradero on one side and the other, highland sirensis.

I think it's fine as is.
I really like the information cards you made! Exactly like a zoo.

You could add some macgravia or ficus pumila to the background to add a hint of green.
Ranitomeya species seem to love it as well and it helps with keeping the humidity.

For the sirensis, they're likely to be quite shy. What I've had success with is taking a part of a coconut, cutting it so that there's a ring of coconut (I can go take a picture when my frog lights come on today) and use this as the spot that I feed the frogs. Several of my group hang around this spot most of the day waiting for food, this means I get to see the frogs on a regular basis.

The other thing i would suggest is a thick layer of leaf litter, both sets of frogs will use it to forage through.

Looks great. My Varaderos love my marcravia. I think you could even add a couple more Bormeliads as they love those. You could plant a jewel orchid, begonia, or a fern or something at the bottom if there's room.

I think you need some mall leaved vines, both climbing and cascading. For climbing, Marcgravia fits the bill. For cascading I think that one of the Solanum vines would be a good choice.

My solanum is a climber. And a pretty fast grower. I really love the color it adds to my Eurydactylodes tank. Is it going to cascade when it reaches the top?
