About two dozen species of frogs and other amphibians are on display at the Aquarium.
These frogs arent messy and they have little body waste to foul up the aquarium. Its the leftovers from your feeding that do. You may opt to invest in minute food scavengers like the corydora or otinciclus catfish to take care of leftovers and preclude decomposing food that can really foul-up the tank.
There are 220 species of frogs native only to Madagascar, including 16 species of Mantella. We have two species of Mantella here at Newport Aquarium.

Unlike turtles and some fish, frogs tend not to be interested in aquascaping, so they don't uproot the plants. They also tend not to eat them. In addition to hornwort (mentioned above), some of the best plants for an African dwarf frog tank are also some of the easiest to care for, such as:
