1. Terribilis are really cool frogs. But as far as mixing morphs, not so good. It's essentially the same as mixing species, you don't want to create hybrids, one of the things I love about the dart world is the general consensus that there are enough beautiful frogs allready out there, so there is no need for hybrids. If you were go mix them and you got eggs and made it public that you were selling them for a normal price and all, there would be a lot of people who weren't too happy with you. Dart frog people don't even like to mix different "lines." Example: a pair of imis, but the male is from Saun Stewarts like and the female is from Patrick Nabors. Some people wouldn't even breed them because of this, all in attempt to keep the genetic integrity.

2. Terribilis are huge climbers, but a 40 gallon isn't that tall, so either would work. I have found that it is alot easier to landscape with wider tanks however, so I usually go for more ground room over vertical space. But either would work.

3. Using a false bottom would probably be a lot easier, but you can also just put the pump in the water area and cover it up with a piece of wood. Thats what I did and it was a heck of a lot easier and it gives you access to the pump without haveing to rip up the tank.

4. Good luck with everything, if you are going to make a super high waterfall make sure all the slate is stable and will not fall on the frogs. I use GE silicone II to hold it together, but I have also used great stuff to make more elaborate waterfalls with a stream and all.
