where is your lid for the tank? do you have one, just making sure, I know you were probably just taking pics with the lid off

looks pretty good except your water looks like its mixing with your substrate and maybe more plants would be good

Looks good. Few more plants maybe. Some ground cover?

Yes, some ground cover is in order. You don't want your frogs slurping up a tasty little critter and ingesting dirt all the time. This can actually be fatal! You can use dry, dormant sheet moss (very cheap) available from pretty much any vendor on here. Intermingle that with patches of Leaf Litter. You can also intermingle smooth rocks, whole sphagnum moss, and I'm sure other things.

My only suggestions would be to add some leaf litter over the dirt, and to mount the bromeliad on something instead of planting it in the soil. They tend to rot very easily when planted in dirt, especially when the substrate is wet (and yours appears to be wet.) What size tanks are they?

did you put mesh or anything between your hydro balls and your soil? its a little late now, but i would do that in the future.
Also i have heard bad things about the foggers being in frog accessible water...the surface of that fogger gets very hot.
I had one of those foggers and it lasted not even a month...try returning it...its a waste of money
and then the brom needs to be attached to wood or sphagnum moss.

oh and the pool is nice, but the frogs will never use it unless you fill it in with gravel so that they can walk on it (im talking like an 1/8" of water on top of the rocks)
