I think it should be big enough. I have 6 auratus. They are currently kept in an Exoterra 36x24x18. When i first got them i had them in a 20 gallon tank for a few months until i was able to buy the big exoterra. Their previous owner kept them in an Exoterra 18-cube, and i think he originally had 8 of them in there.

That is a 31 gallon tank.

In the book "Poison Dart Frogs" by Amanda & Greg Sihler ISBN # 0793828937
there is a chart on page 23, and it says:

Large Dart Frogs (Tinctorius, azureus): 1 per 5 gallons (19L)
Medium Dart Frogs (auratus, leucomelas): 1 per 3.3 gallons (12.5L)
Small Dart Frogs (Thumbnails such as imitator): 1 per 2.5 gallons (9.5L)


So according to that list you should be able to keep around 9 frogs happy in that tank.

Some dart frogs can be very aggressive, however I've never noticed any sort of aggression with mine (wrestling, chasing, etc...)
