I concur on it being harmless to your frogs. None the less, it is very cool!

Its very hard to tell if your not familiar with them and in many situations, I would not be surprised if a microscope is necessary to accurately ID it. Lucky for us froggers, the dangerous species are very rare and I have never heard of a dart frog dyeing of a slime mold. Slime molds are actually very interesting organisms and I really enjoy finding whenever them show up in my frog tanks.
