info on everything please
That's a really big ask. A quick search of the forum and care sheets can get you started.

where to place film canisters
Mine use black film cannisters positioned at an angle, at all heights in the vivarium except the leaf litter. Plant cover around the cannister can make them more secure/appealing.

Have you tried reading the care guides? What is your background, viv size / do you have pictures of the viv? what are you planning on feeding? etc.

Ive tried searching here is a pic of my setup frogs have been in around 12 month prior to me buying them there is 7 in total ive read loads but u can never have to much advice
"Try" makes it sound like it you weren't successful?

Looks like all the hard work is done; good looking vivarium from where I'm sitting with mist heads and lighting. I can't tell how big it is, and a stock response might be to watch how all 7 do together, but it's obviously been working for 12 months, and I've personally kept this species/locale in higher population densities than most other darts.

I'd say make sure you have a good handle on feeders and supplementation. Be ready for tadpoles with these guys- even without film cannisters they'll find places to lay. I've pulled all my cannisters and instead leave a water filled condiment cup for tadpole deposition. I pull tads and rear outside the viv.
